Alan Moore and Chris Sprouse's Tribute to the Pulp Heroes 17. Juli 2014
Von Corey Lidster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As far as DC Deluxe hardcover editions are concerned, these are great books; a bit over-sized, with good-quality paper but not the best, by any means, and each volume collects 12 issues. The cover-boards and binding are typically lower-grade alternatives, but all together it's a nice package for an excellent title. Tom Strong was the weakest of Moore's ABC line, but it still ranks as one of the best mainstream books of the last couple decades. It's lighter fare than Promethea, and didn't have the wit, drama or excitement of LOEG and Top Ten; but it provided many entertaining moments, an unapologetically silly adventure that paid homage to the pulp heroes of Weird Tales, Black Mask and their brethren. Artist Chris Sprouse, Moore's collaborator on Supreme, provided solid and appealing artwork that was supplemented by numerous guest artists. Each issue featured a flashback of several pages that would be illustrated by that the guest artist in a style appropriate to the setting and period -- Art Adams drafted Strong's first meeting with Nazi super-woman Ingrid Weiss, while Gary Gianni renders the hero's ride on an experimental vehicle that travels to the dimension of the dead.

Unfortunately, when Moore's problems with DC escalated, he left the scripting of Tom Strong to other writers. Talented folks like B.K. Vaughan filled in until Moore returned to finish the series final story. Now that a couple years have passed since the second volume collected the series up to issue 24, it appears that the publisher has no intention of releasing the last volume, which is frustrating. Regardless of the fact that Moore didn't pen all the issues, I assumed that this would be a three volume set collecting the series in its entirety; but DC has left the project in limbo, the bottom line once again trumping all other concerns. This is a great book, but don't hold your breath waiting for volume 3.

Outstanding! 2. April 2013
Von Brandon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I just got my copy of this and ive already blown through the whole thing. It is very intelligent and overflowing with scientific concepts and old school "Jonny Quest" styled adventures on a more epic scale than you can imagine. A must read for any sf or adventure fan.

A "Science Hero" For A Modern Era 29. November 2012
Von riot_shark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Alan Moore is hands down one of the best writers of our generation, that goes without saying. Around 1999, he kickstarted an old brand by the name of "America's Best Comics" under the Wildstorm imprint and began producing some of most underrated works. Among the huge catalog of titles, the two most prominent ones are the anthology series "Tomorrow Stories" and "Tom Strong".

The story kicks off in a very well done first issue by the name of "How Tom Strong Got Started" which is about a boy receiving his Tom Strong Fan Club Introductory Packet. This includes buttons, stickers, a certificate, and the real meat of the bundle, a comic. As the title suggests, it tells how Tom came to be Millennium City's greatest hero. He was born in the West Indies, on an island named Attabar Teru and during his early years he is given a native root of the Ozu tribe that "promotes longevity" and "higher cognitive awareness". Essentially, it's like bottle feeding Clark Kent his Kryptonian powers. He later marries one of the island natives (Dhalua), who later conceives a daughter(Telsa).

The series follows the "Science Hero" genre of 1940's film serials pretty carefully, but never to a point where it's an absolute bore. This book is definitely worth your hard earned cash if your either a fan of Moore's work or in the mood for something outside the norm of typical cape comics

Not Alan Moore's Best 28. August 2013
Von DG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I originally read Tom Strong shortly after it came out and I was in high school. I recall at that time thinking it was an enjoyable, easy read, but not what I was expecting from the author of Watchmen. Having reread this today, my opinion has not changed. Tom Strong is a fun, campy work following the exploits of a "science hero" and his unlikely friends/family: a princess of Pacific Island origin, their daughter, a robot chauffeur, and a talking gorilla (or is he a baboon, or an orangutan? dunno.) The stories are throwbacks to the pulp magazines which were popular during the first half of the last decade. A few issues are crime stories, a few involve travel to prehistory, and there are also some Nazis. In this way, I found it very similar to Planetary in constantly switching genres.

This book is a fun, light-hearted read that is aimed at a younger audience than Alan Moore's most popular works. Alan Moore is amazing at writing adult masterpieces - but you can tell he is a bit out of his comfort zone with this title. In his best works, Alan Moore's comics come together like one big clockwork masterpiece - each individual issue has a larger role in a masterfully crafted and grand story. In Tom Strong, it often feels like Alan Moore was simply writing one issue at a time. There is no foreshadowing, and the pieces do not necessarily come together. Also lacking is Alan Moore's usual focus on adult and esoteric themes. Apparently, Alan Moore is just not as good when he is aiming low. There are other writers that do merely "fun" stories much better, including Geoff Johns, Mark Waid and Warren Ellis.

Just another Alan Moore masterpiece 22. April 2010
Von S. Arnold - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Alan Moore is a great writer, on level with Stan Lee, John Byrne, early Chris Claremont....

Alan Moore is a visionary plain and simple, he breathes fresh life into whatever he works on.

This series, tho featuring a campy superhero character, is brilliant and enjoyable.

The art is fantastic. Great deluxe edition.

Highly recommended, all hail Alan Moore!!!
