Hello Science Heroes!!

January 11, 2014

So it started with a boy being raised by scientifically tempered parents, on an abandoned island near the edge of an extinct volcano and in a gravity well.

The grand life of Tom Strong begins here. And the adventures continue as he battles exotic alien ants, fire people from the deep earth, a digital god from another universe, an ancient (like beginnings-of-life ancient) beasty and more. His adventures take him to deep jungles where he meets alien snails who hide in shells of ancient temples, into the world of the dead and into dimensions where his counterpart is a rabbit.

He encounters a variety of people … ┬ádimensional beings, three eyeD farmers on a mesa, a race of bat people living on the moon and of course, the flying squad of nazi superwomen. Heh, yea!

His family – a beautiful and strong wife, and an irrepressible daughter, with a British english speaking gorilla (at least that’s what I think it is) and a robot butler. Now if that doesn’t blow your socks off, I don’t know what will.

Brought to you in comic book format by Alan Moore with his fantastic storytelling and art by Chris Sprouse, this work far exceeds the boundaries of comic books in the superhero genre.

In my mind, what makes Tom Strong one of the finest comic book heroes is not the fact that he fight science villains, and monsters and men and aliens and men who are self replicating things – but he rehabilitates them – turns foes into friends. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a lesson we could all use in our lives.

it begins here

It begins here.

Boldly go

Boldly go.

Oh and apart from his way to cool Hypersaucer, his Heli-vest, his Pneumatic butler (Pneuman), his Entropy Gauntlets – the one thing I would love to get my hands on – Molecular Agitators. Read the comic to know why! And don’t forget the Goloka.

Hello Strange, Beautiful World!

June 3, 2008

It is a strange world. And that’s the beauty of it!

This realisation came when I read the Planetary Magazine – a series created by Warren Ellis and John Cassaday published by Wildstorm. At sci-fi tale of mystery and intrigue of the adventures of the Planetary Organisation. It’s a three man group with a person known as – ‘The Fourth Man’ funding it!

Unlimited imagination, a tale that is as interesting as it is challenging. Warren Ellis shows his true genius in stories like these. Inspired by the events in Marvel comics (Fantastic Four), Warren Ellis forges ahead to create a tremedously exciting story that deals with parallel universes, mythical objects of power, God and the random strangeness of events that makes our planet so interesting.

The Planetary*ing Jakita Wagner, The Drummer, Elijah Snow and guest starring Sherlock Homes, Jules Verne and Count Dracula.

A beautiful story and a must-buy comic book.

God?

What this be?

Yes, really!

Yep, could be God!

Here’s a violent tale of a dynasty of mercenaries – The Metabarons.

Alejandro Jodorowsky teams up with Juan Giminez to bring alive a tale of warriors forged by tragedy, technology and pain!

The Metabarons are based on a supporting character (the current Metabaron) created by Moebius for his comicbook the Black Incal. The Metabarons features panels of awesome space age art work coupled with a sci-fi saga spanning five generations of the Metabarons across seventeen issues – and available from Humanoid Publishing.

A tale of intrigue, passion, destructive behavior, violence, technology and love. A comicbook definitely worth owning!
