ALL-NEW ARC! START READING HERE! The world’s worst superhero team welcomes fan favorite artist Kano (Swamp Thing, Gotham Central) aboard to stop the latest scourge on the streets – ROBOTS!

Eric needs to know he can trust Woody — and that means Woody needs to get a job, open a bank account, sign up for a library card, and do all the things a responsible adult does. But when a new gang of rogue mad-scientist super-criminals launch a wave of ROBO-CRIME, will Woody stop them…or join them? Plus – the return of EDISON’S RADICAL ACQUISITIONS?!

This comic series is so wrong, but I can’t stop reading, even though I will probably go to hell for it. Issue #9 is a start of a new story arc. Woody, Eric, the clone Sixty-Nine (yeah, wrong, like I said) and Vincent Van Goat are at it again. This time Eric needs Woody to prove he can be responsible for just one day. Can Woody do it? Oh, hell no! Not when there are giant robots to drive that can blow stuff up.  And Woody could be falling into some old habits that might spell the end of his relationship with step-brother Eric once and for all.
Quantum and Woody delivers a one two punch with some of the snarkiest dialogue I’ve read paired with artwork details that would have me snorting coffee out my nose, if I drank it. The teenaged boy type humor just tickles me to death. If finding out the straight laced Eric (Quantum) wears a yellow thong so he doesn’t have panty lines while wearing his superhero outfit makes you laugh you need to read this series. 
But the series isn’t all shits and giggles, there are touching flashbacks that give us a look at what younger Eric and Woody’s lives were like and how it shaped them into what they are today. There are also bad guys our reluctant superheroes must stop, that is once they stop fighting with each other.

Give issue #9 a try and see what you think.
