Quantum and Woody #1

Quantum-Woody-1 So a little late in a reveiw but maybe you may have not decided to spend you cash on this book, yet? Written by James Asmus and art by Tom Fowler Quantum and Woody are not your typical heroes. Hell they can not seem to get along with each other. Quantum and Woody were created by M D BrightChristopher Priest for Valiant comics after the company was acquired by Acclaim Entertainment. I was a big fan of Valiant back in the day when they first came out but once it was bought out by Acclaim I lost all interest in the books. So I have no idea about this books history.

Saying that, I found the book entertaining but nothing that really stood out for me. The main characters are foster brothers Woodrow Van Chelton (Woody) and Eric Henderson in this retelling of the story. They are brought back together after the mysterious death of their father. Eric is the more discipline of the two after serving in the military and Woody, well he just gets along on his wits. You can see that Eric resents his brother mostly because of the pressure put on him by their father. Woody just wings it and seems to not to have a care in the world and for no one. There is a part where Woody tries to tell Eric his feeling but does not get the chance.

The story is interesting and I can see James Asmus is trying to set up a back story to show the conflict between Eric and Woody so book #1 is kind of a orgin story. The art by Tom Fowler is fun and is animated. I will have to pick another issue of two to fine out if I want to continue with book.

So in the end I would say pick it up and give it a shot.  I give it 3 goats out of 5

Remember comics are to be enjoyed, not destroyed.

First Impressions

Okay, okay, okay.

I first saw a write up and video on The Mary Sue about how we need a Wonder Woman movie and why we do not have one. I totally agree that we need a Wonder Woman movie and we need it soon before Hollywood decides that super hero movies are no longer a money maker. Well the next day The Mary Sue posted a video by directed by Leo Kei Angeleos, written by George H. Ruiz & Leo Kei Angelos, produced by George H Ruiz and original music by Glen Cheney.

First Impressions

This short film stars Hailey Bright, Chester See and Doug Jones

I love this short and unless you a male chauvinist you can not love this depiction of a strong female charactor. Actress Hailey Bright is AWESOME in the lead and I would to see her in a full length film version.

So watch this and you tell Hollywood to get off their asses and make a good treatment of Wonder Woman.
