Tom Strong welcomes you to an exciting series of previously
untold adventures of his own, as well as the science-fantasy
exploits of new heroine Jonni Future, and delving back into
the past, the escapades of Young Tom Strong in his early days
on the exotic island of Attabar Teru.
Also featured are Tom's daughter Tesla Strong, and the intelligent
ape King Solomon, as well as appearances by many of Tom's
family, friends and deadly foes...
Strong's Terrific Tales: Book One contains some great
short stories which slot into the standard Tom Strong tales,
Jonni Future adventures, a look at the escapades of young
Tom Strong or the occasionally amusing spin on the Tom Strong
of all the different segments, it was the amusing spin-off
stories that I found most enjoyable. These include a night
on the town with Tesla and a collection of Tom Strong collector's
section also included my favourite story in this collection.
King Solomon Pines is a moving and humorous story starring
everyone's favourite intelligent ape, King Solomon. While
Leah Moore's script hits the mark, it is Sergio Aragones art
work that really gives this story that extra kick. I've been
a fan of Aragones for years, and his inclusion here was a
standard Tom Strong tales are entertaining enough - Leap
of Faith sees our hero rescue a suicidal man and The
Dark Inside is a nod to The Matrix. The young Tom
Strong stories are a little less even - the best sees our
young hero attempting to gatecrash a female only ritual and
falling in love with a girl who lives in the sea. But I really
didn't care much for the tales of Jonni Future. Sadly, these
seemed more interested in half naked women prancing around
the pages (nothing wrong with that I hear you cry). However,
the storylines are rather dull for these tales.
the most part though this collection is enjoyable.
