Tom Strong Book II and or Top 10 vol 2...any good?

(1/3) > >>

therev:
I've got both of the aboves Book 1's and was thinking of getting the follow up collections but recently I have my fingers burnt buying stuff and wondered if people rate the second collections of both titles.

The Amstor Computer:
Top Ten Vol 2 - very, very good. If you enjoyed Vol 1, you'll love this. It ties up the main threads from Vol 1 in what is - I think - a first for plot twists in superhero books. It feels a bit truncated - and at least one main plot strand is left unresolved - but it's still a great read.

Tom Strong Vol 2 is a little less impressive than the first, but I'm still unsure whether that's because the novelty has worn off a little. There are some great stories in there - including a particularly fun Gary Gianni-illustrated tale - but it's a fairly patchy read. Again, if you enjoyed Vol 1, you should get plenty of enjoyment out of this, but don't expect *too* much.

Hope this helps!

Well if you liked Top 10 vol 1, you can't really go wrong with volume 2.  I though both were great.  Not read Tom Strong though, sorry*.



* heh - but you should hear what Floyd hasn't read...I think he's still standing in a corner with his hands on his head.

I should think so - calls himself a "comics fan"? Pah!

;-)

You've lost me!
What has he only ever read 90's 'Tooth and Bunty?
