    Thank God it's over. This was a Terrific concept, told dreadfully. I mean, really. I LOVE the idea of a heroic archetype pulled apart to expose the muddled motives and morals. And I have very high regard for Tom King but this was a massive failure, afaic. I did not care one iota for anyone in the story by the end. They weren't written as sympathetic (you're not meant to like them) but I wasn't remotely interested in them after the first few issues. Rann was a kookie place with rubbish baddies.

I've never read any Adam Strange before but this should have been the fun, classic sci-fi area, but it was just dull. I wanted to give it two stars for the excellent art, particularly Evan Shaner, who's classic style is clean and beautiful but also displays tons of nuance in facial expressions. However, the drawn-out slog of reading it has sapped my good will. I have to note that this is a legacy character and the tale features the wider DC world from time to time and that could be what colours my feeling. Maybe it's just not for me. But I've dipped into the big publishers before and enjoyed it. I think this was just fucking dull.

    Good concept for a story told over the 12 parts but it kind of lost me, the time jumps got a little confusing at times and the ending was a little underwhelming.

    "There is always a certain glamour about the idea of a nation rising up to crush an evil simply because it is wrong. Unfortunately, this can seldom be realized in real life: for the very existence of the evil usually argues a moral weakness in the very place where extraordinary moral strength is called for." -W.E.B. Du Bois "There is always a certain glamour about the idea of a nation rising up to crush an evil simply because it is wrong.

    If you follow what I review probably you noticed I removed one star from all the other issues (1-11). The reason is this last issue is completely disappointing. It had the potential to be 5 stars but the ending has ruined it.

    I'm completely confused by this ending. It certainly wasn't helped by being delayed. I'm sure that, in the context of the story, it makes sense but, like with most Tom King stories, I think I'm going to need to re-read it as one big chunk instead of monthly.

    The landing didn't stick. The ending didn't live up to the promises made in the series. And the intermittent delays didn't help at all as this delayed final chapter of Adam Strange's strangest adventures whimpered to an end that was disappointing at best. The landing didn't stick.

    This series had its moments, but overall I’m pretty underwhelmed.

    Overall I enjoyed this series and think it deserves a re-read, but this final issue seemed to miss the mark concluding it.
