QUANTUM & WOODY: EARTH'S LAST CHOICE TPB

Review: Quantum and Woody #4

QUANTUM & WOODY #4

Home Alone, the boys are left to defend their lair against would-be bandits! What is Woody’s dark secret? The truth is finally revealed in Quantum and Woody #4!

The finale to the four-part miniseries finds writer Christopher Hastings, artist Ryan Browne, and color artist Ruth Redmond coming together one more time (though hopefully not for the final time) for a comic I have waited nearly three months to read. Was it worth the wait? Was I able to just pick it up and enjoy it without refreshing myself by reading the first three again?

Two kill two birds with one stone, the answer is yes.

While not everybody will want to just pick the book up and dive in after three months, the way the Hastings has been crafting the story over three almost standalone issues means that while there are some elements that cross the four issues, the specific events don’t need to have been memorized to enjoy Quantum and Woody #4 (though if you do want a refresher, there’s no reason not to go back and read the other three).

Hastings has once again packed a full story, start middle and end, into a single comic, though with the finale he also wraps up the threads he had left over the course of the previous three issues. It is in many ways a bitter sweet comic, because as far as we currently know, there aren’t any plans to bring Hastings back to Quantum and Woody, but he ends his story on a high note without leaving any real loose ends dangling – but you’ll be wanting more from him and the creative team by them time you turn the final page.

Browne’s art has been perfectly suited to the chaos that has been this series, and both he and Redmond shine in the final issue. There’s often a lot occurring on every page, but the comic never loses its ability to tell a coherent visual story. The art is bright, bold, absolutely insane, and I love it. There’s a lot going on in almost every page, but you’re never lost; this is a book that you’re going to want to take your time reading, or read it a second time so that you can really appreciate the talent on display here.

I’ve never really been the biggest Quantum and Woody fan, but Hastings, Brown, Redmond, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou have delivered one of my favourite series this year. This is a nigh-on perfect comic book in its own right, but when you take it as the final part of a four-part miniseries, then it becomes an absolute must-read book.

If every comic that I read after Diamond started delivering again was half as good as this, I’d be happy.
