Quantum Leap Comic Volume 1 – 13
Innovation Comic | September 1991 – July 1993 | CBR | English | 5 MB – 14 MB
Quantum Leap, besides being one of the finest television shows on the air, is also a comic book based on the same series. It is supposed to ship on a roughly bimonthly basis by Innovation Comics, but only occasionally reaches that frequency. The stories are of roughly the same quality as the television series, but sometimes have trouble dealing with the limited space -- each story runs 24 pages in length and can be read (at an enjoyable pace) in about fifteen minutes (some issues have two complete stories). Were each episode to be done as a television episode, the quality would undoubtedly increase, but most of the stories are still good nonetheless.
