It's a story arc that serves as a prequel to the Rann-Thanagar War which in turn is one of four mini-series that kicked off the Infinite Crisis company-wide crossover event in 2005 (the other three mini-series were The OMAC Project, Day of Vengeance, and Villains United. While Planet Heist didn't initially make bank, news that it tied into the upcoming Rann-Thanagar War spiked up sales for the latter issues

With Adam Strange: Planet Heist, that's not the case So much fun you will be begging DC for more Adam Strange by Diggle. com User, December 5, 2005.

So much fun you will be begging DC for more Adam Strange by Diggle. The greatest claim to fame to this story is probably that it leads into the rather lackluster Rann-Thanagar War, but this story is the real prize. Strange absolutely shines as the star of the book

While Adam Strange was featured heavily in the 1960s, the character saw only sparse usage between the mid-1970s and the late 1990s. Due to the scarcity of Adam Strange standalone books and the likely lower print run made of this book in the post-1990s, overly-cautious comic book society, this mini-series can be a hard one to track down.

Talk about Adam Strange: Planet Heist

This graphic novel felt very old school. I found myself saying "uh oh! How will Adam Strange get out of this one!". The story felt very classic and seemed like a call-back to vintage comic books while at the same time not feeling dated. It's an awesome, suspensful, fast paced and action packed comic.

You don't have to be an Adam Strange expert to enjoy this. There is a brief backstory to help the reader understand the basics. I jumped into this book knowing almost nothing about Adam Strange but I felt like the writer did a good job of catching up new readers.

Also, the art work is spectacular! I recommend that you read this.

OK, Adam Strange, right? He's this spaceman guy with a JETPACK and RAY GUNS and he flies around and BLASTS ALIENS! PEOOOWWW!! PEOOWWWW!! And all the aliens are like, "You weak human, you have no chance to survive make your time!" and Adam's all like, "Yeah? Well YOU don't know your ZERO GRAVITY FIGHTING TECHNIQUES!!" and then he whips around SHOOOOMMMMMM and BELTS them right in the GUT! DOOOSJH!! DOOOSJH!! And he's married to this TOTALLY hot alien space babe -- HUBBA HUBBA -- and has a super cute baby girl and there's robot cops and killer assassins in cybersuits and hot alien babes with wings and space vampires and heat-seeking learning smart missiles and PLASMA PULSE MASER weapons made of HARD LIGHT CONSTRUCTS and TIGER MEN and SPACE STATIONS and FLYING CARS and SUPERNOVAS and BRAINS in TANKS and OH MY GOD THAT WAS TOTALLY WICKED!!!!!!

Reading this trade paperback reminded me of what it felt like when I was six years old walking out of Star Wars for the first time. Anybody who says comics aren't "fun" any more clearly hasn't read this mini-series. It gives you about 5 pages to buckle up before flooring it, and it doesn't stop for anything until it runs out of its 170-or-so pages. It starts on a ridiculous premise and then starts spinning ever more outrageous lies until you get someplace that is truly, utterly ludicrous, but the whole thing just slams past you so fast that you either don't notice or just don't care because you're grinning from ear to ear at the sheer audacity of it all.

Pascal Ferry's artwork really shines on this title. It's easy for Andy Diggle to write a panel description that goes something like, "We see the Spider Alien army overrunning the Omega Men's positions, while in the background, Adam Strange is spiralling in mid-air fighting the Thanagarians," but it is truly marvelous to see Ferry deliver artwork for it that is simultaneously fantastic and completely believable. It's also fun to watch Strange's suit gets ever more ornate over the 8-issues of the mini-series, while never losing the now-retro-chic of his costume design from the 50's.

May well be the best $20 you'll spend on comics for 2005, or at least the most fun.

Not that it matters now - because DC's New 52 has crapped mightily on long-established continuity - but there was a time when I grew excited about Adam Strange's prospects. Adam Strange: Planet Heist is a trade that collects issues #1-8 of the 2004 Adam Strange mini-series. It's a story arc that serves as a prequel to the Rann-Thanagar War which in turn is one of four mini-series that kicked off the Infinite Crisis company-wide crossover event in 2005 (the other three mini-series were The OMAC Project, Day of Vengeance, and Villains United.) While Planet Heist didn't initially make bank, news that it tied into the upcoming Rann-Thanagar War spiked up sales for the latter issues.

Why is Adam Strange so cool? First, he's a thinking man's hero, a science hero, and that's alway a neat departure from the standard bruiser in cape and cowl. In a way, he out-Indianas Indiana Jones. Like Indy, Adam is an archaeologist, but Indy never rode a Zeta Beam to a friggin' alien planet. Which brings us to the next point: Adam Strange is an interstellar adventurer of a type that hearkens back to the planetary romance stories that were published by pulp periodicals like Amazing Stories and The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction back in the 1930's, '40s, and '50s. Adam Strange came along at the dawn of DC's Silver Age and even now he represents that 1950s and '60s aesthetic. Even Alan Moore's cynical take on Adam Strange during his Swamp Thing run, although intriguing, couldn't sway me from my image of Adam as a cat of pure nobility gallivanting about on an exotic world with his jetpack, a raygun, and his native smarts.

In Planet Heist, writer Andy Diggle presents a more contemporary spin on Adam. Rann's champion comes off more edgy, more raw, but still with his moral roots intact. Adam is stuck on Earth, and this is nothing new. Often, he's had to wait for the next Zeta Beam to manifest on Earth to teleport him to Rann, exotic planet what orbits Alpha Centauri, nearest star to our own. Except that the Zeta Beam didn't show up on schedule, or the one after, or the one after. Adam is stuck on Earth, detained in a police precinct trying to explain to the bemused authority why someone just blew up his apartment block.

Adam is badly coping with devastating news. Friends in very high places have confirmed that his adopted planet no longer exists, that, in his absence, Rann's primary star went supernova and vaporized the entire planetary system. It's about as low as we've seen Adam as he mourns his beloved alien princess and their daughter.

But before you feel too bad for Adam Strange, recall the title of this mini-series.

Yeah, son, whichever menace is at the bottom of this would've done better to let sleeping dogs lie. Adam Strange has caught the scent and he's on the trail. Seeing as he's a thinking man's hero, bet on him to figure things out. It's old hat when it comes to mystery in space. Look, he's got the jetpack on and that gaudy uniform.

Adam Strange: Planet Heist is what they call a fun outer-space romp. It helps that artist Pascal Ferry delivers lines that are stylish and clean and modern but with a whiff of that old-school pulp. Ferry's art doesn't quite have the grace and fluidity of Carmine Infantino's classic lines, but it's really good, anyway. It helps that Diggle doesn't try to overhaul Adam Strange too much. His Adam is understandably more pissed off and all the more badass for it. Diggle populates his story with familiar DC outer space characters, some of whom rub Adam the wrong way, some of whom just want to rub Adam. Another bid for nostalgia is Diggle's habit of producing dramatic cliffhangers a la those old pulp serials from the 1930's and 1940's.

Yeah, I've a soft spot in my heart for Adam Strange. It's tough to be underappreciated while you're saving galaxies. I feel your pain, too, Captain Comet and Space Ranger. These three are obscure and not very commercial figures in DC Comics. Frankly, ever since the New 52, I haven't kept up with DC. For all I know, today, Adam Strange, Capt. Comet, and Space Ranger are showcased front and center. But I doubt it. Anyway, if you have it in you, take a gander at this volume, to a space and time when Adam Strange was relevant again for two minutes and saved the universe and had fantastic interstellar adventures and bested an adversary that would've brought the Justice League to their knees. Or, as Adam Strange would call it, Wednesday.
