Once upon a time on Rann, Adam Strange made a deal with his neighbors and foes to take a stand against the invading Pykkts. Now, on Earth, he is trying to do the same thing: to get all the heroes to rise as one to keep the marauders from doing to his home planet what they already did to his adopted one. But the original deal was a devil’s bargain, and Alanna Strange has received a mysterious letter that may tell her more than she wants to know. If she wants to keep her husband safe, it’s time for her to go on the offensive.

    DC Comics' STRANGE ADVENTURES is incredible. And with the bombs dropped in this issue, this creative team shows they can deliver on answers just as well as they delivered on mystery. Read Full Review

    The StoryEarth is losing the war against the Pykkts. But, no one understands why. Especially given that Adam Strange and his soldiers had defeated the Pykkts on Rann. When Allanna Strange receives a mysterious letter. We finally get to grips with the shocking truth of the matter. Adam Strange lied about his heroics. A deal was struck and Earth was the prize. But there was so much more to it than that. After all. War is hell. Read Full Review

    Gerads and Shaner deliver stunning art across every page. I love the visual style of the series and how both sides of the story utilize them. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 27, 2021

    The writing by Tom King is quite excellent. He writes a great script here and knows how to work well with his artists. Mitch Gerards and Evan Shaner do a spot on job with the artwork. This is a great issue of an excellent series. I look forward to seeing how they end it all. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 25, 2021

    I'm referring to a twist and a reveal that is one of the most genuinely shocking I've ever read in a comic book, and leaves me genuinely conflicted about whether it's a good idea. What it is, though, is fantastic drama that leaves me curious what the hell is planned for these last two issues? Because this is one of those things where there really is no going back.

    AIPT - David Brooke May 25, 2021

    This book continues to play out like a magic trick, and a good one at that. There are interesting visual ideas at work, blended in a new way since two artists working so closely on the page together is a rare thing, but also because so much information is subverted or hidden away. Much like a good magician, the creative team has kept us guessing every step of the way, and further intrigue us by doing less and misdirecting us. For some, this is a recipe for frustration, but Strange Adventures continues to enthrall with visual and storytelling tricks usually left to the best magicians. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 26, 2021

    Strange Adventures #10 is the issue where the magician reveals the trick in a way. Mr. Terrific not only lays out his conclusions but why he came to them. His words are one that's full of regret and sadness over his own experiences as his own truth is revealed as well. It connects the dots that have been set up for the nine previous issues while setting up what should be a hell of a final two issues. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 3, 2021

    Strange Adventures covers a lot of ground here with Mr. Terrific presenting his letter on what he believes happened, which was not included in what the Justice League had produced. And for obvious reasons as they were looking at it from a different perspective and with different issues informing it. It definitely works well to showcase what Terriflc learned from his journey and his interviews and it presents it in a thoroughly engaging way. King's script works better than usual for me here in presenting what's essentially an information dump and I'm curious to see how much truth there really is in it. And once again, both Gerads and Shaner deliver some utterly gorgeous pages. I love what we see on Rann with its variety and cast of characters with how they look and just wish we had even more of it.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 25, 2021

    The positives outweigh the negatives here as the technical aspects ofStrange Adventures #10 manage to outweigh the portents of Adam's chicanery. Additionally, the negatives are fueled by conjecture and expectations based on Kings other work. Even if one is unsure of Kings story direction, its undeniable that Gerads and Shaner do everything they can to sell book! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 25, 2021

    Strange Adventures #10 reveals the plan. The plan doesn't make you feel good about Adam Strange. You understand him, you get why he did what he did, but ultimately you're left wondering if this was a story that needed to be told.  The score will be a reflection of the quality of the art and storytelling, not necessarily whether or not the reviewer liked the story.

    Comics: The Gathering - James Caudill May 26, 2021

    I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this story to be honest. I am hopeful of things coming out by King and Gerads and will honestly support anything that they do together. But, I know where this story is going and now I am just kind of checked out of it. I’ll go ahead and pick up the other two issues to have the full collection but if I had not already had every copy, I don’t think I would search it out. The art is well worth the price of this book but I think I would trade wait if I had it all to do over again. I think it might fit better together once every issue is out. I really can’t in good conscious tell you to get this particular book for the story but if you want beautiful art work, then certainly get this book. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 25, 2021

    Still its hard to feel like their efforts have been put to the best use as too often King has treaded water with the script. The lack of twists and surprises has robbed the series of its momentum as it heads for the home stretch and it feels like a waste. The potential was here but it looks like King just didnt have enough ideas to keep it engaging. Read Full Review

  • 3.0 - Chase Magnett May 26, 2021

    It's a poorly paced entry as it repeats a narrative already stretched thin across 9 issues and adds very little in building to the final reveal. Read Full Review

    Now that's a big twist but hopefully it has one more before reaching the end.

    After this issue, I believe we’re supposed to understand that Alana is more in the dark than we thought. She believed in the war and understood that she needed to commit horrific acts of violence in order to save her home. She then helped her husband’s PR image because she believes in him.

    Honestly, I love what King has done here. He showed and explained why Earth, who has survived multiverses threats, was vulnerable to the Pykkts and is tying up nicely the mystery as it is slowly unveiled.

    Complete and utter bullshit, even King fanboys MUST see this, he just ripped you off of nine issues' worth of money for a farce! And he turned Adam Strange into a villain after he did the same to Wally West! Why does DC lets this guy get away with this kind of stuff? He's not Alan Moore and HE NEVER WILL BE BECAUSE HE SIMPLY LACKS THE TALENT AND SKILL.

    I'm still reserving judgment on the series as a whole until its conclusion, but Tom King and the gang certainly did a nice job with the pacing and intrigue in this issue!

    Not a bad issue but I'm not invested. Genuinely, throughout reading this, all I could think about is how everything with Alanna could easily just be put into a Tulsi Gabbard comic.
