124: Tom Strong with Tobias Ellis

This week Tobias joins Bruce to talk about Alan Moore's throwback to pulp heroes, Tom Strong. Born in 1900 to ship wrecked parents on the mysterious island of Attabar Teru, Tom was raised in a high gravity chamber on a strict diet of Galoka root. As a result, he had super human strength, reflexes and intellect and became the world's first science hero. Listen to this episode to find out how one of the comic book world's greatest writers put a new spin on an old concept.
