Tom Strong’s Terrific Tales

 TSTT   (America’s Best, 2002-2005)

™ and ©2002 America’s Best Comics LLC

Part of the second wave of comics from Alan Moore’s America’s Best Comics line, Terrific Tales is to Tom Strong what Superman Family was to Superman: a collection of short stories featuring all the supporting cast of the regular Tom Strong comic, such as Tesla, Tom’s daughter, tales of a young Tom Strong, and new characters to the Strong universe, such as Jonni Future. Most of the stories are written by Moore, and each one is drawn by a different major artist including Arthur Adams (Longshot, X-Men), Jaime Hernandez (Love and Rockets) and others. Although most of the stories are self-contained, the Jonni Future story by Adams is an ongoing serial, done in the tradition of a Saturday morning sci-fi matinee. At $3.50, it’s well worth the price of admission, and a show that no Tom Strong fan will want to miss.
