Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Moore wraps up the saga of his updated pulp-hero Tom Strong and his America's Best Comics superhero line with this final collection of the popular series. By this point Moore was farming out the scripting duties, and while the substitutes' efforts were consistently more engaging than standard superhero fare, they almost invariably failed to duplicate the pinpoint balancing of homage and innovation that Moore effortlessly achieved. Fortunately, for the final story Moore returned, joined by original series artist Chris Sprouse, for a satisfying wrap-up featuring nothing less^B than the end of the world. Gordon Flagg

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As the review by Flagg correctly implies, the majority of stories in this book are by other writers. Being an old fan of Michael Moorcock's "Elric of Melnibone" and "Eternal Champion" series, I was looking forward to the first pirate-themed Tom Strong story written by Moorcock. Unfortunately I found it to be less than captivating. While MM writes fine novels and short stories, I think his foray into graphic novel territory highlights his inability to condense an interesting story using only a few hundred words and graphics, making it very difficult to follow the narrative. Not only does it dwell too long on the wrong things and not long enough on the right things, but it's shamelessly recycled: Strong's antagonist in the story is one "Captain Zodiac" who, name aside, is a red-eyed, white-haired, albino doppelganger of Elric. Not only that, but his quest is to recover none other than the "Black Cutless," an ebony blade engraved with runes which "drinks" souls exactly like Elric's own sword, Stormbringer. I was tired of it after two pages of the athletic contrivances to get Tom Strong into the past. OK, enough about the bad. I only go on so long because I expected better from someone of Moorcock's abilities.

Writers Steve Moore (no relation), Joe Casey and Peter Hogan put together relatively entertaining fare: one has Tom finding and helping destroy a fictional, nightmarish city; another provides closure for Tom's old (frozen) love and an old-time enemy; and the other focuses on Pneuman who displays some uncharacteristic behavior that Tom has to get to the bottom of. My emphasis is on "relatively" entertaining, like the warm-up bands for the main event of Alan Moore's Tom Strong finale.

Alan's story saves the book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase asked me a review of this 6th installation of Tom STRONG Books. I'll start by stating that since discovering Tom STRONG only months ago, I've got all previous books, plus all the "TS's Terrific Stories", "Terra Obscura" and "Tomorrow Stories" tpb I could find. Apart from the excellent stories (they manage to be nostalgic, tongue-in-cheeky and thrilling at the same time), what sucked me in is artist Chris SPROUSE's truly brilliant work. The guy has to be in my TOP 10 artists ever. The STRONG family comes like a cross between the Fantastic Four (the family bounds, the STRONG building, Tom's knack with science), The Doom Patrol (the mystery tales) and Madman Atomic Comics (the colorful supporting cast). All six books of the series are currently being reissued in hard cover form, coupling two books at a time. Volume 1 is just out. It is arguably the best. Golden/Silver age Comics fan, you know what you have to do...

Format: Hardcover
The last TOM STRONG book isn't the least -- I'd go w/ Book Five for that dubious honor (fewest stories, all one-shots, no Moore) -- but it's only a moderately entertaining, if still intelligent and often creative, conclusion to the Eisner award-winning flagship title of Alan Moore's revolutionary America's Best Comics (ABC) brand. Of the six stories in the sixth book, the best is clearly the last, a single issue summation that reunites its virtuoso creator with his updated pulp character in a climactic revelation at the "end of the world," the TOM STRONG finish spinning out from the simultaneous climax of another ambitious ABC title, "Promethea." (in fact, the finish of TOM STRONG is secondary to the end of "Promethea," though it also stands completely on its own).

This final issue/chapter TOM STRONG #36 is a fulfilling conclusion to a classic comic series -- Bravo. The five previous issues (by Steve Moore [unrelated], Peter Hogan & Joe Casey) are much less ambitious and creative but still worth reading, and contain one genuine narrative surprise that twists back to a Book Five story involving an old love of Tom's and a notorious villain. There's also a Pnueman-centric story about Tom's robot valet; Tom battling through a nightmare of a city; and a pirate story from noted sci-fi writer Michael Moorcock that sounds better than it actually is. Art is from the usual stellar slate of talent that Moore attracts: Chris Sprouse, Jerry Ordway, Jose Villarrubia, etc. It's gorgeous.

If you're reading through the TOM STRONG books, all of which are worth your time (as is pretty much anything in the ABC line), of course you should read this book. But of course you should try to read TOM STRONG from the beginning, because the first year is by far the best -- simply superb intelligent escapist entertainment from the master of the comics medium. But this final volume makes for a satisfying conclusion. Long live TOM STRONG!
