Today marks the release of the 50th issue of Valiant Entertainment's Quantum And Woody, and to mark the occasion, Daniel Kibblesmith and special guest artist Francis Portela are marking the occasion with a momentous event - the birth of the Goat's baby!
When Dr. Derek Henderson finally returns, Eric and Woody are more than a little overjoyed at their father's return. However, it is soon discovered that the man's molecular structure is breaking down at an accelerated rate. Within 72-hours, Dr. Henderson will transform into a flood of energy and be lost to the cosmos for good. Upon this realization, Eric takes it upon himself to attempt to find a cure to save his father's life before time runs out. While Woody handles things the only way he knows how - by taking the man out for a crazy evening comprised of babes and booze.
While Eric searches frantically for a cure, readers will be treated to a look into the life of Derek Henderson - from his love of science as a result of classic B-movie cinema and the numerous struggles he was forced to overcome as a young black man growing up in 1960's USA.
We are also treated to another look at Eric and Woody's childhood, one that saw the future world's worst superhero team raised by a man who truly loved and appreciated both his boys, and wanted nothing more than to show his sons the wonder of the world of science - and the fascinating, oftentimes disturbing world of classic black and white B-movie cinema.
Meanwhile, Eric's desperate search eventually leads him to his father's former boss - the man responsible for the accident that took his father out of their lives. However, despite his best efforts to get some answers out of the aged scientist, Eric soon realizes that the trail has gone cold and that there really is nothing he can do to save his father.
