Adam Strange was right! In this issue guest-starring Batman, the Pykkts have come to Earth, and they plan to claim the planet as their own. Earth’s greatest heroes have faced alien invasions before, but they’re about to learn that the Pykkts are more formidable, more determined, and more deadly than any invading force they’ve faced before. Only Adam Strange has ever defeated them, but it nearly cost him everything-including his own sanity! How did he survive? Mr. Terrific will need to uncover that secret if humanity is going to survive!

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Dec 23, 2020

    Issue 7 really ramps things up. Adam Strange no longer seems like a super hero as the reader will question the validity of his actions. While Mr. terrific is the one investigating, it is the reader that will ultimately have the final say if Adam is guilty or not. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 1, 2020

    When all is said and done, Strange Adventures #7 delivers a strong story that has a lot of character while beginning to build its overall narrative for its endpoint. It feels like the bombs, both emotional as well as literal, are about to start dropping. I just hope King and company can hit their marks. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 1, 2020

    Strange Adventures is a deeply contemplative series. It's one that demands you read between the lines to discover true intentions and even truer feelings. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 8, 2020

    Strange Adventures continues to engage the reader with both of its storylines and just the surreality of some aspects of it. The entire flashback sequence this time really is fascinating to watch with Adam goes through, and while it doesn't excuse anything it provides the context for it and illuminates possibly why things have gone down as they have. Questions still stew there that unnerve, mostly in relation to Alea, and seeing Alanna getting more inquisitive about things definitely helps to shape how this back half of the series will run. There's a lot to love here, and it's absolutely gorgeous in its layout and visual design, that I'm excited to be back with this property again after a short break. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Dec 1, 2020

    Overall, Strange Adventures #7 is another excellent chapter in this series. Though the issue raises some serious concerns about the treatment of Adam's character, it's extremely well written and beautifully illustrated by Shaner and Gerads. The deepening mystery is a plus, and one can't help liking Alanna more and more as this series continues. One hopes that Adam will not be destroyed in the process. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Dec 1, 2020

    Adam Strange takes a trip; literally and otherwise, in ‘Strange Adventures' #7. A comic boo of contrast in both styles and subject matter as we witness Adam take on the role of soldier on Earth, while he's all lots in space in the flashback sequences. Trippy, confusing but certainly an issue that lives up to its title. This really is a strange adventure. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 1, 2020

    This issue laid the groundwork for what's to come although it's feeling like King could have told this story in half the time instead of slowly parceling out information. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 5, 2020

    On the one hand, we get some solid revelations and move the story forward. On the other hand, this issue introduces so weird, trippy, mind-games stuff that served more to confuse than anything else. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Chase Magnett Dec 2, 2020

    Strange Adventures continues interrogating how war and atrocity (but I repeat myself) dehumanize all involved, but its' framing of these questions reveal a lack of awareness that undermines the entire enterprise. Read Full Review
