On sale this summer from Valiant Entertainment is Quantum and Woody #1, the first issue of the revival of the beloved series.

And, to the relief of many, Valiant has already promised there will be a goat.
Comic books and video games have been the chocolate and peanut butter of my life for as far back as I can remember, so I always get a little excited when they come together. That being the case, you can imagine how thrilled I am that Valiant has decided to promote their upcoming Harbinger Wars crossover with a series of 8-Bit Variant Covers by artist Matthew Waite, mashing up Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong and the rest with NES classics like Contra, Donkey Kong and Final Fantasy.
And not only that, but they're going a step further by releasing an actual video game
