About the Author:

Alan Moore is perhaps best known for his groundbreaking writing on Watchmen, Batman: The Killing Joke and V for Vendetta. He is currently working on the ABC line of comics, which also include Tomorrow Stories, Promethea, Top Ten and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (all published by Titan). Chris Sprouse has worked on such diverse titles as HammerLocke, Glory, Legion of Super-Heroes, Starman, Legionnaires and WildC.A.T.s/Aliens.

From Booklist:

In the late 1990s, acclaimed comics writer Alan Moore created "science hero" Tom Strong for his America's Best Comics line. Moore chronicled the adventures of Strong--a physical and mental paragon who defends Millennium City with the help of his wife, Dahlua, their spunky daughter, Tesla, and their talking ape companion, King Solomon--for five years before laying down scripting duties. As the stories collected here demonstrate, his successors have done him proud by deftly combining clever concepts and breezy fun. Schultz has Strong encounter extraterrestrial beings threatening to halt machine-powered flight on Earth, and Brian K. Vaughan focuses on Pneuman, Strong's robot manservant. But the standout story is by Ed Brubaker, who traps Strong in an alternate reality in which he's an ordinary schlemiel who only dreams that he's a superpowered hero. That story's artist, Duncan Fegredo, breaks away from the clean, modernistic approach of the series'original illustrator, Chris Sprouse, into a gritty, slightly messy style that effectively conveys the harsh reality in which Strong finds himself.
