Preview: ‘Strange Adventures’ #1 Gives Us A Hero In Retirement, But For How Long?

by Oliver MacNamee

As a fan of Tom King’s more emotionally centred run on Batman, as well as his and Mitch Gerads’ award-winning Mister Miracle maxi-series, I’ve been looking forward to their joint take on Adam Strange in new DC Comics/DC Black Label series, Strange Adventures, for a long time now.

Well, the wait is almost over with issue #1 out this new comic book day, Wednesday March 4th. Having already given you a first look recently, here’s a preview of Strange Adventures #1. Add them all up and that’s a pretty good look at the first issue. Will you be picking it up this NCBD?

Adam Strange is the hero of Rann, a man famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor. After leading his adopted home to victory in a great planetary war, Adam and his wife Alanna retire to Earth, where they are greeted by cheers, awards, and parades. But not all is as happy and nice as it seems, as the decisions Adam made during battles on Rann come back to haunt his family and threaten the entire DC Universe. And now a surprise DC hero will have to choose between saving Adam Strange and saving the world.
A story like no other, Strange Adventures is an ambitious, thrilling, shocking, and beautiful 12-issue saga that will push Adam Strange to the breaking point-and beyond.
