Preview: ‘Strange Adventures’ #1 Offers Up A Hero In Retirement By King, Gerads And DC Black Label

by Olly MacNamee

Arguably one of the most anticipated DC Black Label series of the year must be Tom King and Mitch Gerads‘ 12 issue maxi-series Strange Adventures and their distinctively domestic but dramatic (dramestic?) take on the Silver Age classic, Adam Strange. With only a month to wait DC Comics have released a preview of the first issue as well as a glorious Evan ‘Doc’ Shaner variant cover. Get ready for some more of that Mister Miracle street-level ,low-fi melodrama when Strange Adventures #1 debuts on March 4, 2020.

Adam Strange is the hero of Rann, a man famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor. After leading his adopted home to victory in a great planetary war, Adam and his wife Alanna retire to Earth, where they are greeted by cheers, awards, and parades. But not all is as happy and nice as it seems, as the decisions Adam made during battles on Rann come back to haunt his family and threaten the entire DC Universe. And now a surprise DC hero will have to choose between saving Adam Strange and saving the world.
A story like no other, Strange Adventures is an ambitious, thrilling, shocking, and beautiful 12-issue saga that will push Adam Strange to the breaking point-and beyond!
