Tom Strong, the man raised by science! and a steam-powered butler, rises up to do battle with the spirits of the air, living paintings, killer dreams, Mayan magic and still gives his wife that sweet loving she craves.

Despite the two-issue arc of "The Terrible True Life of Tom Strong" which shook up my expectations of the series, I'm beginning to feel a little cold towards Tom Strong and the utopia that is Millenium City. I don't necessarily want grit, I've had quite enough of that, but it all co

An all-star cast of writers fill in for Alan Moore in this one - Mark Schultz (of Xenozoic Tales), Brian K Vaughan (of Y: The Last Man and Lost), Ed Brubaker and Steve Aylett - and while the artwork and production values are up to the title's usual superb standard, the stories aren't quite as glittering as before. It's no fault of the writers - they obviously worked hard (I seem to remember reading that one of them would throw up due to the self-imposed pressure that came from working on an Alan ...more

The difference between this and other Tom Strong books is that it just didn't BUILD the same way the others do.

Then I saw that there were all these other (famous and awesome) comicbook authors and I thought it made sense. It would have been extremely impossible for them to collaborate the same kind of structure that Moore usually makes in Tom Strong books.
Shannon Appelcline
Generally, a mediocre volume, thanks to the very scattered group of writers, not all of them particularly talented. The Vaughan story is actually good, with its focus on Pneuman, while the Brubaker story is OK, but its problem is that it’s too long and the premise has been done to death. Overall, though, not really worth rereading.

Recommends it for: Cualquier Moorista y fans del pulp en general.
Recommended to Feather by: El renombre de sus autores.
Tom Strong queda en manos de otros autores, todos de muy alto nivel, y cada uno narra el aspecto que le interesa del universo Strong. Eso sí, por lo general ninguno de los comics está al nivel de las obras propias de cada autor, pero igual casi todas están muy bien.

Another fun, pulp/action/super-science collection, featuring other writers tackling the Tom Strong saga. Three great individual issue stories and one very, very cool two-parter make for a wonderful read. The art, the stories, all of it just rocks my socks.
Another strong collection of stories, including a moving P.K. Dick-ish conclusion.
