'Strange Adventures' #1 early reactions suggest this is one book you should definitely pick up
After 'Mister Miracle' and 'Vision', Tom King is all set to subject yet another classic hero to his trademark psychological treatment. King's new 'Strange Adventures' series will be a deep character examination of Adam Strange, the John Carter-esque hero of two worlds who protects both Earth and the alien world of Rann.
The series follows Strange's return to Earth after winning an interplanetary war, only to be accused of committing war crimes while he was on Rann. Part of the 'DC Black Label' imprint of books for mature audiences, 'Strange Adventures' will be a 12-issue series written by King with Mitch Gerads illustrating the sequences set on Earth and Evan "Doc" Shaner tackling the scenes in space.
Early reactions for the upcoming 'Strange Adventures' #1 are now in and they are overwhelmingly positive. Quite a few people who got their hands on preview copies have been taking to Twitter to talk about the book and they all seem to agree that this is a definite must-read.
"I'll add my name to the voices recommending #StrangeAdventures from @TomKingTK @MitchGerads & @DocShaner," one early reviewer tweeted. "Read my preview copy this weekend and I get that same feeling I did with Mister Miracle. Namely, that I can't wait for more of this story."
The user continued in the same thread writing, "That's not to say the story itself feels like MM. It is completely its own original idea exploring what truth means & how that can change based on perspective. Very apropos in today's world. Get to your shop early so you don't miss out on Wednesday great job again @TomKingTK."
"#StrangeAdventures 1 by @TomKingTK @MitchGerads @DocShaner has a solid set up," another reader wrote on Twitter. "Interesting premise of a War Hero returning "home" under a modern political climate. Visual narrative is top-notch. I like the juxtaposition of the 2 art styles. They fit the dichotomy well!"
"I read #StrangeAdventures," another user tweeted. "No comments or spoilers until Wednesday, but... this is gonna be something else."
Yet another reviewer wrote, "I read #StrangeAdventures last night after the #KingAndCrew panel at #C2E2. It’s incredible. Absolutely incredible. @DocShaner and @MitchGerads are tremendously complementary of each other and @TomKingTK Is a modern master."
We don't know about you but we're definitely going to be eagerly waiting to snap up the upcoming graphic novel as soon as it hits the stands.
'Strange Adventures' #1 is scheduled for release on March 4.
