It’s been a heck of a long time coming (or certainly seemed so) but this will definitely make a great early birthday present come June! Chris Sprouse is one of the most criminally underrated artists around and it’s always a real treat to see him unleashed on the title he helped co-create, with characters that he clearly enjoys so much.
I know I was itching for more Strong family stories so here’s hoping June 2nd get’s here just that much quicker. Tom Strong and the Robots of Doom #1 solicitation from Wildstorm’s The Bleed:
The super sci-fi adventure continues as one of Alan Moore’s most beloved creations returns to comics with ABC veteran Peter Hogan (TERRA OBSCURA) writing and co-creator Chris Sprouse penciling! Tom Strong and his family prepare to celebrate Tesla’s wedding when the unthinkable happens – before their eyes, reality alters to become a world conquered by the Nazis and ruled by Tom’s nefarious son Albrecht! What is the mysterious secret from Tom’s past that has brought this catastrophe about? And how can things ever be put right again?
Ah, and what’s more from Wildstorm? A 2-issue Astro City mini-series starring the Silver Agent that will hit stands at the end of the month. Also great news! Look for Astro City: Silver Agent #1 on June 30th.
