In the aftermath of STRANGE ADVENTURES, Adam Strange and Captain Comet heed Vril Dox's call to arms to stop the onslaught of Starro the Conqueror! But Starro has a plan that even a super-genius like Dox won't see coming.
As usual, Claude St. Aubin did his best to mirror Andy Clarke's style to give the book a consistent look. Some panels seem a bit too cartoony for my tastes, but not enough to bring the book down. You know, after typing this review it is clear I liked this issue more than my opening paragraphs read like. Despite seeing some well worn themes revisited, I think this issue also planted the seeds for a new arc and some new plots. I am glad that DC is giving this book the time and publicity it deserves.

The vibe this book gives is not dissimilar from that of "Guardians of the Galaxy" and DC certainly has a wider array of alien planets and species to bring in. Bedard and crew have set down a firm foundation for this title. The book has enough momentum that the "Blackest Night" crossover issues shouldn't totally derail the series. If anything, "Blackest Night" might give this series the boost it needs to find more readers. After all, who doesn't love a story about giant, galaxy-conquering starfish? This is the type of enjoyable adventure that is only possible in the pages of comic books. Read Full Review
