365 Comics...62: Adam Strange #2 (1990)

I love convergence in a story, where multiple threads collide.  This Adam Strange miniseries continues to surprise me with its almost effortless juggling of so many story threads in such a relatively short space.

I also love that this miniseries aims to relaunch the character as a more serious science-fantasy concept (and succeeds), distancing but not completely ignoring the character's high concept roots, nor does it dispense with continuity, still ir corporating Swamp Thing's visit to Rann a half decade earlier.

Richard Brunning puts on a masterclass on revitalizing a character, especially relevant in these reboot /retcon crazy times.  Now, to track down that 3rd issue.
