The planet Thanagar, home to a predatory, militaristic civilisation,
has long found itself in opposition with Rann, a world devoted
to the unending pursuit of knowledge. For years, they have
endured an uneasy, unsettled peace. But now, in a cruel twist
of fate, Rann finds itself teleported into the Thanagarian
planetary system, threatening the existence of both worlds
and inflaming age-old hatreds. As tensions evolve into all-out
war, heroes from both worlds - Hawkman and Adam Strange -
unite to prevent genocide. If they fail, the conflict threatens
to engulf other worlds in interstellar chaos. Alliances will
be forged, friendships tested, and the balance of galactic
power forever changed as the fate of two worlds is decided...
Rann - Thanagar War could have been an interesting addition
to the Countdown to Infinite Crisis series of stories.
The planet Rann is on the verge of all out war. As tensions
rise between two alien factions, Rannian space cop Adam Strange
travels to Earth to enrol the help of Thangarians Hawkman
and Hawkgirl. With the balance of the universe in jeopardy,
can their unified front avert an inevitable disaster?
the artwork is pretty impressive, I found the actually story
a little on the dull side. War, what is it good for? Not comic
storylines - that's for certain. This is a real "blokes"
tale. Plenty of beating of chests and honour is thrown around
like clothes in a washing machine. When asked by his daughter
why they can't just flee the planet before war threatens to
destroy them, one of our heroes simply says: "Sometimes
you have to stay and fight". I think not.
frankly I am surprised at how sloppy Dave Gibbons's writing
is here. Is this really the same man whose 2000AD work
we grew up on?
you are a huge Hawkman and Adam Strange fan, then you might
find something of merit here, but I wouldn't hold your breath.
