To celebrate the release of Quantum and Woody #1, Valiant Entertainment has announced it will re lease the variant cover to end all variant covers.
Featuring all-new cover artwork by Valiant superstar Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and a cabal of top-secret special guests, THE MOST VARIANT COVER OF ALL TIME! will be the first-ever embossed, lenticular, die-cut, individually hand-numbered, and chromium-enhanced comic book cover – all before being hand-stickered with a randomized fourth Valiant hero, and printed with two unique foils and iridescent fifth ink!
In order for retailers to get a copy of the Most Variant Cover of All Time, they will need to order a minimum of 250 issues of Quantum and Woody. I get where Valiant is coming from – the company is trying to take a tongue and cheek approach to the variant craze that all but destroyed the comic book industry in the 1990s. I may be one of those that is still suffering from post traumatic stress brought on by that time period and marketing campaign, but I’m not particularly fan of the joke – especially when someone out there is really hoping to grab one of these to pay for their child’s college education at the expense of a LCS having to buy 250 copies of Quantum and Woody #1. I hope the issue is worth it.
Sometimes…you embrace your destiny. And sometimes…you and your trouble-making adopted brother find yourselves trapped in a scientific lab explosion that grants you $@&%ing awesome super-powers. As a result oftheir accident, Eric and Woody Henderson – aka Quantum and Woody – must “klang” their wristbands together every 24 hours or both dissipate into nothingness. Which makes superhero-ing pretty awkward when you’re not on speaking terms at the moment. See, Eric has been keeping a pretty big secret: He knows who Woody’s birth father really is…and where he’s been hiding all these years.
Oh, if you can’t get your LCS to drop the dough to get you The Most Variant Cover of All Time, perhaps they can order enough to get you the Extreme Ultra-Foil Chase Variant.
Quantum and Woody #1 arrives on December 20, 2017.
