Book Description

21 Jun 2002 Tom Strong
Best-selling comics scriptwriting supremo Alan Moore (Watchmen, V For Vendetta, Batman: The Killing Joke) returns with his fantastical science-hero, Tom Strong. America's Best Comics, his own imprint, has already wowed readers both sides of the Atlantic, with Moore once more forging the future of graphic novels! In this astonishing second volume of stories, Tom Strong, the retro-futuristic hero of Millennium City, faces a whirlwind of adventures which will take him through the Wild West, a crazy cartoon world, a deadly jungle, beyond the veil of death itself, and, in a stunning two-part conclusion, to a parallel Earth on the other side of the Universe - and a meeting with the most powerful man in the universe, Tom Strange! Can you handle this much excitement?

5.0 out of 5 stars Light entertainment? Not so light!!! 20 Jun 2002
Format:Hardcover
Fantastic! Old pro comes back with positive creation after 80s deconstructin. This (supposedly) lightweit&childish story shows us a fantastic hand, able to seriously play with worlds - and our perception of this worlds!
Buy two - one to cherish and reread and one to lend. Would gladly give 7 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Graphic SF Reader 3 Sep 2007
By Blue Tyson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
More adventures of a Doc Savage type that does have some time for women. In this trade, we get the backstory to the excellent Terra Obscura spinoff. An desperate and exhausted Tom Strange has crossed 30 light years to get help for his planet, a near identical copy to Earth. A huge alien entity has strated remodelling it to turn it into a spaceship, and he has nowhere else to turn.

4.0 out of 5 stars From Strength to Strength 18 Dec 2008
By Kevin Killian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Tesla meets Val Van Garm or whatever his name is close to the beginning of Book Two of Tom Strong, and the story seems to inch a bit closer to adult sexuality, though later on when Tesla is forced to put down the antics of the young Kid Tilt, she seems entirely childlike all over again. Even though, as she reminds Kid Tilt, she's sixty. What's the problem with Tom Strong? Well, oyu don't really care about any of the characters, perhaps because they're all incredibly old and so advanced medically it looks as though they will live forever.

That's why the Tom Strange epic story really makes a difference in Book Two, for you get the alternative emblem of a Tom Strong defeated by life's twists and turns, and visibly hurt and distraught. The amazing image of Tom Strange crossing the Milky Way by foot to get to his earth double is played just right, for once a moment that isn't super whimsical and postmodern. (Though afterwards I was thinking, this really doesn't make a whole lot of sense.) Not that the whimsical and postmodern touches don't have their charms--I like seeing Tom with his search-board tucked under his arm, and the repeating multiples of Tom and Tesla (in "Too Many Teslas"?") have a wacky, Lewis Carroll-like brio that threatens to overturn the master narrative of identification.

I'm hooked all right, even on those Western dopes with an extra eye in the middle of their foreheads, but why couldn't Tom Strong have been better? Too many Teslas, or too many cooks?
