CBR Review: Strange Adventures #1

I recently reviewed Strange Adventures #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Joining the 20-page main story is a ten-page secondary story written and illustrated by Starlin. With Synnar missing in action, Deacon Dark goes about contacting the Aberrant Six, who Synnar has plans for. First on the list is Hawkman, but thanks to his assistant’s screw-up, events are altered and Bizarro takes Hawkman’s place. The idea here is pretty absurd and obviously tongue-in-cheek since it begins with a Forrest Gump reference. Starlin makes an odd choice not having Bizarro talk, but considering how old Bizarrospeak gets, I’m not complaining. While his writing has a bit of wit, Starlin’s art looks rough and rushed. With extremely thing line work, most of the images here barely look fully conceived."
