How determined is Mr. Terrific to find the truth? The answer becomes more challenging as the whole world starts to turn against him. Adam Strange is a hero who can save the Earth from alien invasion, and who is Mr. Terrific to say otherwise? The extent of the denial only makes the man more suspicious. 
Not that the warmongering Pykkts care one way or the other. If Strange is to be believed, they only have one thing on their minds: taking over the planet. Adam and his wife beat them back once before, and the key to doing it again is to dig into the past that Mr. Terrific is so hell-bent on destroying.

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Oct 13, 2020

    While I had been enjoying the moment to moment writing of Strange Adventures up to this point, I had started to garner some reservations about where the larger story might be headed, and how it would get there. With the final pages of this issue, I can confidently say many of my former concerns are abated and I am fully back on board. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 13, 2020

    For the past few issues, each subsequent issue has surpassed the previous one. It's the case with Strange Adventures #6 as well. King has set up the reader to believe one thing and then turned things around to something unexpected. The use of real human emotion is what makes this series so engaging. These are emotions that anyone can relate to that has nothing to do with the ostensible science fiction genre. Do yourself a favor and pick up this series. It's not too late. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Oct 18, 2020

    Strange Adventure #6 is another fantastic issue. If you are waiting for the trade, it will be a must buy once it is out. However, each issue seems to understand what serialized storytelling is about. This comic stands along perfectly while also servicing a larger narrative. Read Full Review

    Alanna takes a winter walk with Mister Terrific in ‘Strange Adventures' #6 while we once again get to see Adam Strange is action and in flashback on Rann. Alanna revels herself to be one tough nut while I worry for Adam after her discussions with her interrogator. A great issue that contrast the inaction of Earth with the all-out action of war against the Pykkts. Halfway though and I feel that I'm only just getting to how the real Alanna. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Oct 20, 2020

    OverallThis was a pretty good issue overall. I liked the whole conversation between Mr. Terriffic and Allanna and how that was all juxtaposed with the flashback sequences. If there is one small criticism it would be that six issues in and we are still waiting for something big to happen on the Earth. You know like the Pykkt invasion that the writer is teasing us with.

    The Gerads segments, as usual, are gritty and compelling, but it's the Doc Shaner segments on Rann that are the star of the issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 13, 2020

    Strange Adventures #6 is the high point of the series showing of the cerebral nature of it all. Like discussed above, it's a dance between two highly intelligent people as they figure each other out. The investigation continues as Michael still searches for the truth and we the reader are continued to be forced to question everything we're shown in the past. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 13, 2020

    Mitch Gerads delivers some stunning art in the moments between Alanna and Holt. The scenes are beautiful to look at and are powerful in their subtlety. Shaner delivers some amazingly detailed and beautifully done battle scenes on Rann as well and both interludes enhance the story greatly. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 20, 2020

    Strange Adventures is pretty much continuing on as it has by giving us the two main views but with a lot of nuance and uncertainty as to what the truth is. There's the truth as we want to believe it and there's what's being told to us, but everything can change with one slide move to the side and taken from a different view. I really liked Michael and Alanna's time together here both in the dialogue and the artwork while the entire adventure on Rann with the fight against the Pykt was just amazingly well done. It's a beautifully intriguing tale that will have me questioning things probably up until the final panel and an overall re-evaluation, but this is a really engaging journey to be on.

    Strange Adventures #6 reveals much of Adam Strange's war against the Pykkts, and in doing so reveals its own oddly detached perspective on war. Read Full Review
