* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Eric Henderson believes his best friend Woody abruptly left because of simmering racism, surfacing only once to leave him a rude note demanding a phone call. In reality, Woody left because he and his mother ran away from an abusive relationship and soon fell into poverty; the note was intended for Woody's father to finally call his long-abandoned son.

** He's on the receivng end in a flashback to hopping in a cab after a run-in with street thugs and when he complains about "those black kids" cutting his suit up, the black cab driver just gapes "son, have you looked at your skin?"

Added DiffLines:

* ComplexityAddiction: Eric in spades. In a classic story, he's convinced that a woman was murdered as part of a great conspiracy and a red dot at the crime scene is blood. This leads him and Woody to go all over the world tracking down an arms dealer, asking why he killed her...and the man just asks "who?" When they get back, the detective in charge of the case notes that the red dot was ketchup (as Woody was saying all along) and the woman's husband confessed to killing her.
** Heading to a building, Eric insists on climbing up the roof with a grapple gun. Woody just uses the elevator.
** When Woody can't be found, Eric goes on a rampage against David Warrent, convinced he's behind his abduction. It turns out Woody just wasn't answering the phone. Warrent openly lampshades how Eric is obsessed with the idea someone ''has'' to be behind things like a comic book when in real life, "things just happen."

* EndOfSeriesAwareness: In the final issue of the first series, Woody picks up a telephone, then informs Quantum (and the reader) that the book has been cancelled. The trope was reversed when the title was un-cancelled a year later with a ''second'' phone call.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Done when Woody first reads the "Dark Kitty" comic book, an {{Expy}} of MarvelComics' ComicBook/BlackPanther (also written by Christopher Priest at the time). Woody badmouths the book with criticisms that are entirely applicable to ''QuantumAndWoody''...

* ContinuityNod: In issue 6 of the reboot, a crazy secessionist soldier is going on about a bizarre conspiracy theory involving Wall Street bankers in gold masks fighting nuns. Even his comrades think he's crazy... when in fact, he's talking about the Sect Civil War arc that was going on at the same time in ''ArcherAndArmstrong'', in which that exact situation happened.
