Three more short adventures in Millennium City with Tom Strong.
Tom Strong and his Phantom Autogyro - Gary Gianni
Tom ventures into the realm of the dead to learn a bit more about his parents - but the past is often better left dead. A good little tale that sheds a bit more light on the relationship between Tom's mother and Father. Gianni's art is wonderfully spectral; his ghosts seem like they are made from ether on the page. Nice little tale that is a nod to the hero's journey in general.
Funnyland! - Chris Sprouse
Tom invents a searchboard that allows him to jump between parallel universes; he ends up in a forest full of talking animals. There Tom is confronted by Warren Strong - a anthropomorphous rabbit version of himself. Together they save Patience ( a rabbit version of Dhula) from the evil clutches of the fox faced Basil Saveen.
This was a particularly enjoyable story - Chris's art was a nice change in style (fuzzy animals and all) and the script was full of comedy. Good read.
Too Many Teslas? - Chris Sprouse
Tesla steals her Dad's searchboard and opens up a portal to an alternate reality; what come through the portal is the real surprise. A nice romp through alternate realities (or should I say genres) and a variety of nice reimaginings of both Tesla and Tom. I liked the nods to Crisis type Earth naming. Another fine story from the Moore & Sprouse camp.
This has probably been my favorite issue so far. But tomorrow is another day - Happy reading.
