    One thought on “Showcase Presents: Adam Strange, Vol. 1”

    1. I disegni, per lo pi di Carmine Infantino, sono buoni Pieno stile classico, come del resto ci si aspetta dal maestro americano di chiare origini italiane.La nota dolente sono le storie il personaggio non male ed ha molti spunti, come infatti dimostrer negli anni 80 Alan Moore nel suo Swamp Thing Qui una specie di macchietta e le storie sono di un ripetitivo veramente annoiante.A parte una o due, sono veramente letture da poco.

    2. Adam Strange is one of those creatures of the Silver Age that no one has really manage to get right since then This book collects Strange s first 30 appearances from the Late 1950s to mid 1963 This book collect s tales from Showcase 17 19, and Mystery in Space 54 84.The set up is simple enough Young Earth archaeologist Adam Strange is struck by a beam of Zeta radiation that takes him 25 trillion miles away to the planet Rann There Strange meets and falls in love with Alana, the daughter of one o [...]

    3. A solid collection for the Silver Age DC aficionado, but a word of warning to the casual reader do not try to read a bunch of these stories in one go Adam Strange s clever premise was also its greatest curse, and these comics are some of the most formulaic and repetitive I ve ever come across The best way to enjoy these is the way they were originally presented 8 16 pages at a time with several weeks in between More realistically, dip in and read a few to get the flavor and leave it at that, unl [...]

    4. I grabbed this from the library when I could find nothing else.It wasn t bad Not great either, but not bad.Adam Strange is an archaeologist that accidentally gets teleported to another world Rann He meets a girl, falls in love, saves the world from some threat and then fades away back to earth Rinse and repeat.Rann is always in some kind of trouble Always The first time Adam defeated a threat by getting caught and waiting until he faded back to earth so he could return in a few days with a plan [...]

    5. A very nice read Don t read it all in one sitting Remember, these stories were originally published over a span of five years Although that doesn t hurt them as much as I thought it might The fact that ALL of them were written by Gardner Fox allowed him to play with continuity to a degree that most DC books of the period didn t do.

    6. Great art, some interesting concepts, but suffers from formulaic plot lines of the monster of the week in this case month kind This is par for the course in silver age comics, but would have appreciated some fleshing out of strange and Alana, and their relationship.

    7. Adam Strange proves that the haphazard application of pseudo scientific principles is a valid method of superheroing.

    8. Fabulous art by Infantino and Anderson fun but formulaic tales hinging on overly simplified science Still, it s a wonderful piece of nostalgia.
