Or – “Clearly NOT Clark Savage, Mr. Copyright Lawyer…” Around the turn of the last century, the comic book industry was filled with a great many books that played with the very tropes of serialized storytelling.  (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was one, The Authority another.)  One of the greatest, now sadly devalued, was Planetary, which paid homage not just to the comic book heroes, but the pulps that spawned them.  I enjoyed every single issue of Planetary, but this issue may be my favorite of them all…

Nazis. Robots. Time Travel. Three things that will instantly get my attention, as the combination usually means some trippy alternate timeline stuff where the hero must reverse the effects, or lose his loved ones forever.

Or – “The Return That No One Expected…” For all the guff that I give fans of 90’s comics, the entire decade wasn’t deadwood.  Indeed, near the end of the decade/century, there was a renaissance in comics that led to such wonders as Planetary, Rising Stars, and the entire America’s Best Comics imprint.  Of these books, Top 10 was my quirky favorite, Promethea was probably the most successful artistically, Greyshirt was a noir flashback tale, but none of them had the pure comics vibe that Tom Strong had.  Taking the most successful elements of Lee and Kirby’s Marvel, the tales
