Tesla Strong is with child and in mortal danger, necessitating her father and husband – subterranean royal Val Var Garm – travel across the stars to the alternate world of Terra Obscura! Terra Obscura was one of the more interesting concepts that Alan Moore introduced into his ABC universe, blending the standard “evil twin” archetype and metafiction to fan-favorite results. The stalwart art team of Chris Sprouse and Karl Story assures this book will be a thing of beauty, indeed. Their collaborative efforts always offer clean lines and clear storytelling, cutting through the din and clutter with economic vitality. It’s nice to have the band back together.TSTRONG_POP_1_44uoknu3mf_
