TOM STRONG (1999) #12 - Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Tom Strong #12
An homage to the cover of Justice League of America #22 sets the mood for Alan Moore's story of the hero of one Earth leading a group of alternative Earth champions in a battle for their planet. Literally reviving several the Better Publications science heroes from the Golden Age of comics, Tom Strong joins his counterpart Tom Strange (originally known as Doc Strange) in a tale rife with personal tragedy and sacrifice.

An alien entity is transforming Earth into a gigantic spaceship and will soon fly it off to parts unknown. That is, unless a rag tag group of heroes can halt its mad machinations. Guest-stars abound in this epic tale: Pyroman, Fighting Yank, American Crusader and the Liberator, among them. Perhaps most unnerving is the eerie, beyond-the-grave return of the Terror who lives on past death in the most startling form of all.

Chris Sprouse's clean style shines through as panel after panel conveys the intense human drama of heroes fighting for the life of their planet. His and Moore's Tom Strong represents the essence of the benevolent scientist-superman the prime stuff Doc Savage and later the Man of Steel himself were molded from.
