A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 161
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today, we look at the opening of a great Adam Strange mini-series by Andy Diggle and Pascal Ferry.
To set up the scene, Adam Strange, the man who splits his life between two worlds, Earth and Rann, was eventually spending less time on Earth and was actually on what was meant to be his last journey to Earth in Gotham City when the transportation beam that usually brought him back to Rann (where his wife and child were) did not show up.
Eventually, Superman visits him to tell him that a supernova went off and destroyed Rann completely.
So Adam is quite depressed and things get worse when he is taken in for questioning when his apartment building is destroyed while he was out of the apartment.
He escapes custody and he is met by interstellar bounty hunters – it is here that Andy Diggle demonstrates Adam Strange’s superpower – he has the superpower of being ingenious, and boy do Diggle and Ferry do an awesome job showing Strange’s quick-thinking in an utterly fantastic action sequence leading into a brilliant cliffhanger…
I guess the cliffhanger would be “the” moment.
