VFCast Season 3 Episode 13: A Goat with a Woody, that is too hard to resist!


Title: Quantum and Woody: Volume 1 Director's Cut
Author: Christopher Priest
Artist: Mark D. Bright 
Publisher: Valiant Comics (Acclaim Publishing)  
Release Date: I donno, originally in '97

There is a darkness in me, one that grow and twists and burns. It calls me in the night to do things, questionable things, things never to be spoken of. I am becoming it’s creature, it’s thrall, it’s dark servant. I will do it’s bidding, I will serve this dark power, the one that flows from the darkest corners of my soul, and I shall be REBORN!

I love superheroes, but sometimes I get so very tired of the trite nonsense that the genre is often filled with . If you are a comic book fan I’m sure you do to. Mr. Priest clearly has the same warm feelings for old school superheroes that The Vestrymen have, but he has a complicated enough relationship with them to make reading 90s superheroes seem like a good idea.

RELEASE: February 8, 2006

Our podcast will establish, without a doubt, haters be silenced, that Operation: Galactic Storm was A Thing That Happened. Some will deny it and declare me a liar but the egg will be on their faces once I show them an actual copy of the crossover.

This book contains the following things:

  • Thor with the most ridiculous hair-and-beard combination imaginable.
  • Quasar being a creeper, As we previously established.
  • Repeated attempts by Starfox to turn people on so much they forget how to fight.
  • Lots of heroes and lots of text in the panels.
  • Pretty cool cover art, especially when compared to the interior art.
  • Terrible, terrible, terrible hacking scenes.

If you want something else, like characterization, dynamic art, or an overall feeling of what it is like to experience this book, listen to the podcast!
