    Jordie Bellaire and Todd Klein add a ton to this book, as well. Bellaire's colors are masterful; borderline perfect. She never overdoes it, never buries the artwork. Everything clicks into place and adds to the visual feast for your eyes. Klein works his usual lettering splendor here. The bold, large font of Strong's balloons, the subtle flames on Val's. It's the little things that make Tom Strong so great and unique. Tom Strong just gets it, this is a comic book for people who love comic books. Great stuff, through and through. Read Full Review

    It's not often that an issue mostly full of chatter can feel engaging, but Hogan manages to do it, although he gets lots of help from Sprouse, who makes the most of even brief moments of activity. Read Full Review

    Of course threats like this aren't enough to get the science hero down and he remarks the pair will simply have to stamp out the plague and save an entire world before heading home with the formula needed to save the life of both Strong's daughter and unborn grandchild. Another strong (pun intended) issue setting up a herculean heroic undertaking for Strong before he can make his way home. Worth a look. Read Full Review
