Tom Strong headlines another series of previously untold adventures
of his own, as well as the future-fantasy narratives of Jonni
Future, and tales of Young Tom Strong in his early days on
the tropical paradise island of Attabar Teru. Also featured
are Tom's daughter Tesla Strong, as well as Tom's wife Dhalua,
and their friends and companions, such as the intelligent
ape King Solomon and the robot helpmate Pneuman, plus a tour
of Tom's home town...
second volume of Tom
Strong's Terrific Tales is
an improvement on Volume
1. The plotlines continue from one tale to
the next in the Young Tom Strong tales, which helps
to keep the reader interested in events.
these stories are Jonni Future tales and stand alone
jokey stories. These include the animated cartoon spoof of
Wacky Races, G-G-Ghosts at the Gear Stick, and
Tesla Strong: The Danger Daughter, which sees Tesla
being captured by the owner of a big game park - a park where
the hunted species are beautiful women. Coloring Our Perceptions,
which follows a normal Joe as he daydreams about being a superhero,
is probably the best of these stand alone stories - and has
a very unexpected twist in the tale. There is also an essay
called Millennium Memories, which offers a guide to
the history of Tom's home town.
amongst the Young Tom Strong stories we get yet another
retelling of how Strong's parents came to be trapped on a
desert island (also see if you can spot Popeye in this tale).
Strong fans will not be disappointed by this collection
and, to be quite honest, even if you've never read a Tom
Strong story before it's relatively simple to slip into
this collection and feel right at home.
very strong collection of terrific tales.
