Adam Strange

Comic Heroes - - Feature -

The first hu­man on a dis­tant planet, Adam Strange started out as your aver­age arche­ol­o­gist from mod­ern day Amer­ica, stolen across space by “zeta-beam” tele­port tech to the dy­ing planet Rann. Armed with jet packs and ray guns, Strange would be­come Rann’s cham­pion, but ev­ery so of­ten the beam would ping him back to Earth, some­times at the most in­op­por­tune mo­ments.

One of the joys of this strip is the way it mixed space mon­sters with real-world so­lu­tions to stop­ping them. Mean­while, Carmine In­fantino’s joy­ous art made it one of the most hand­some books on the shelf.
