Do you like science? Do you like robots? Do you like nazis? Well, then do I have a deal for you! Created in 1999 by everyone’s favorite Alan Moore, Tom Strong is a science/action hero that Moore and Chris Sprouse used to do bi-monthly for America’s Best Comics, which is a division of WildStorm (which is an imprint of DC). You may or may not have heard, but Tom Strong is coming back, written by Peter Hogan (who used to write Tom Strong in Terra Obscura) with art by Chris Sprouse (awesome!) and Karl Story. There will also be variant covers done by JH Williams, who also used to work with Moore at America’s Best Comics on Promethea!
Phew. That’s a lot of information. I guess you better check out a preview of the first issue over at WildStorm’s blog, The Bleed:
Written by PETER HOGAN – Art and cover by CHRIS SPROUSE & KARL STORY – 1:10 Variant cover by J.H. WILLIAMS III
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 pencilling! 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 mysterious secret from Tom’s past has brought about this catastrophe? And how can things ever be put right again?
Featuring a variant cover by fellow ABC alumnus J.H. Williams III (DETECTIVE COMICS, PROMETHEA)!
The book comes out on June 2nd for $3.99, and should be a good deal of fun for you fans of science action heroes. For those that don’t know Tom Strong too well, check out the brand new Deluxe Editions on Amazon.com, available here and here (the second of which came out just this month!)
