You knew it was coming. When Valiant first announced it was launching a new Quantum & Woody series, it was only a matter of time before their sidekick, the teleporting Vincent Van Goat, made his triumphant return. Readers didn't have to wait long, as the goat will reappear in October's Quantum And Woody #4, written by James Asmus and illustrated by Tom Fowler, and featuring a variant cover by Chew artist Rob Guillory. You can check out the cover, as well as some early art from Fowler, below.

Created by Christopher Priest and Mark Bright, the goat first appeared in the third issue of the series' initial run, and instantly became a favorite among readers. In Priest and Bright's run, the goat gains the power to teleport after eating part of an interdimensional map, but his origin will likely change a bit in this new series.
