Cracking open a bottle of wine, I settled down to the joyful depravity that is a Quantum and Woody comic from Valiant Press. Quantum and Woody: Goat #0 helps explain a little back story regarding the extremely powerful goat that travels with the two during adventures. After attempting to sell the goat to not so local farmer, Eric and Woody head home with a handful of cash and the hopes that they will never have to deal with a goat that burns holes in an apartment with its laser eyes ever again. As they drive away, the goat begins to go into a series of flashbacks regarding its early life, quest to make love to Dolly the cloned sheep, and the events that leave the goat with superpowers.
James Asmus and Tom Fowler do a great job of keeping the script on task and in the correct vein for the series. The goat is just weird enough to capture the attention of regular readers to the series. Tom Fowler’s art is both adorable and semi-realistic for a comic book. Each panel of the goat looking longingly at Dolly the sheep over a television monitor made me laugh.
This comic had me both laughing out loud and tearing up a bit. The final panel of the comic is a big reveal for the series and I highly encourage anyone currently reading Quantum and Woody to pick up this issue. This series as a whole often leaves me scratching my head and wondering What the Hell Did I Just Read.
