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

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.

Amazon.com 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...
