After the events of the DEATH OF HAWKMAN miniseries, Adam Strange is blasted through multiple dimensions only to land on Earth! There, instead of super-powered beings and legendary crime fighters, he encounters a boy adventurer and his scientist father - and they're the only ones who can help him return home. Jonny Quest, Hadji, Dr. Quest and Race Bannon have a plan, but it's going to involve a dangerous trek through Dino Boy's Lost Valley of prehistoric threats! And in the backup feature starring Top Cat, breaking out of prison is challenging enough for a cat, but sometimes it means stumbling through a cosmic portal to planet Earth... and ri more

    So yeah, if you have kids into the Quest show and feel like getting them into comics, you could do worse than this. Read Full Review

    Marc Andreyko and Jeff Parker have a pretty strong handle on these characters, and Steve Lieber's deceptively simple art style really compliments this tale. This issue is a quick and enjoyable read until it gets to the bizarre backup story with Top Cat and Batman. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 29, 2017

    Overall, this is a mixed issue and sets up some interesting things for the future. It's really cool that the Adam Strange Future Quest aspect of the issue takes place post both of their stories. That's really smart and makes this one shot feel that much more important. But, the story itself doesn't bring a lot that's new or different, like their series before did. It also feels like it sets up something for the future, which Top Cat does as well. It's an interesting concept overall with these two mash-ups, but neither quite feels like it lets loose in the ways I expected. Read Full Review

    This special is a fun romp that does everything it's supposed to do. For fans of Jonny Quest, seeing Jonny and Team Quest appear in such a classic approach is a real treat. This book won't set a new standard in comics, but it's an enjoyable tale that evokes the right tone and mood. Read Full Review

    A fun read, but one you'll most likely forget after reading it, Adam Strange/Future Quest does make you aware of these characters and franchises. It's the artwork makes you want to see them again though, but only if drawn by Lieber. Read Full Review

    There really doesn't seem to be much reason for this story. It doesn't illuminate anything for any of the characters and the resolution to the story doesn't illicit any emotion. I think this is a good idea for a story that just didn't find itself. Read Full Review

    I was looking forward to the Top Hat backup going in, but I got kind of queasy when I found out that Dan DiDio was writing it. It was set up for his own series that I had no idea he was getting in the first place, and involved Batman for some reason. It wasn't very good in my opinion. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 29, 2017

    My score for this review is based solely off my interest in Adam Strange and this being the continuation of the Death of Hawkman........... so keep that in mind because I haven't been reading Future Quest and have very little interest in the characters of this property. So with that in mind, I really didn't care for this Annual because it did little for the Adam Strange character except make him come off really useless for the majority of this issue and really just stands as a stop off and single adventure for our hero before he makes his way back to the DC Universe. The art wasn't bad, but it wasn't something that I really enjoyed either and hope that this will at least do something for Future Quest fans because it didn't do anything for me. Read Full Review

    I rather enjoyed this. I didn't read the Death of Hawkman miniseries, because it honestly didn't look very good, but I'm a pretty big Adam Strange fan, and I thought this was an enjoyable little romp. I hope it leads into a new Adam Strange book detailing his adventures in the Multiverse on his way to being reunited with Alanna. The Top Cat backup was pretty cool, and I like the idea for his book.

    This one was the most boring of the crossovers for me. I think it has to do with me not being fully caught up with both storylines that it diverges from, but not much happens overall. I feel like it is just a catch up issue that is one of the more unnecessary crossovers to get.
