Unless you like alternative comics in general then it will be hard to say whether this is for you. Roughly half of this collection consists of quirky humorous spoofs on familiar Marvel characters, being the offbeat kind of humor normally found from the Kitchen Sink Press, and the rest is what I would describe as being odd alternative narrations using Marvel characters that aren't necessarily trying to parody as much as being a form of literary experimentation. In both the humorous material and the more serious work, there's some of it that works and some of it that doesn't.

What I enjoyed most about this collection were the well written oddball humorous pieces. There is some truly great parody stuff to be found here, but there is also a lot of stories that left me wondering what the point was supposed to be. I was also surprised to find that many of the creators that I thought would appeal to me most were often only mildly entertaining compared to some of the lesser known artists. Having read a fair amount of alternative comic books in my time, I should have realized that just because an artist is great at creating dynamic visuals does not necessarily mean they are apt at writing dynamic or engaging stories.

In general I liked volume 1 more than volume 2, and there is enough worthwhile material to make the whole collection worth checking out, but to honest I found it to be about half and half.

I came for Peter Bagge, and stuck around to enjoy Tony Millionaire, Stan Sakai, Max Cannon, Jason and the always zanny Johnny Ryan. What these artists are up to here is to take The Hulk, Ironman, The Punisher, Spider-Man and The Sub-Mariner, and knock our heroes down by a few pegs. And as these tales are both very weird and very funny, they might have gotten it right.

This book reminds me an awful lot of "Heavy Metal" magazine circa 1977, and as that was such a great way to introduce the world to the greats of that era, this is indeed a great thing to see in the year 2010, history repeats itself!

The color and print of this book is top-notch, and my biggest gripe is that I should have shelled out a few more dollars and gotten the hardbound edition as it seems to be the better buy over the paperback edition.
If you enjoy comics, this is for you.
(and if Baloney-Head, doesn't make you smile, call the coroner, you is dead!)
Three and a half stars!

I love seeing alternative takes on superhero comics. There's only so many times you can watch them fight without wondering what else could be going on in the universe. Some of these stories get that. I really enjoyed Perry Bible Fellowship's contributions but, then again, he's pretty much always that good. However, a lot of the book is taken up by comics that I really didn't like, mostly because of the art style. One of these stories is entirely incomprehensible. Like, it has some unique-looking art, but it isn't what I'd call "sequential art." But there are some neat things in here and, if that's what you're looking for, go ahead.

"Strange Tales" is a real mixed bag. You already know the premise - "indie" comic creators crank out some material using whatever they want from Marvel's wide history. Unfortunately, it isn't all that good. Personally, I bought this because I wanted to try something new, and I did see that one of my favorite creators, Paul Pope, contributed something. Ultimately, Pope's short Inhumans story ended up being the only thing I found entertaining or memorable.

I admit that I'm much more accustomed to mainstream cape comics, and as such I found a lot of the material here either, bland, boring, or plain uninteresting - both plot and art-wise. Some contributions are no more than a few panels, others go on for too many pages. Most amount to nothing more than shallow jabs at characters, or resemble a forgettable strip one might see in a lackluster issue of MAD. I honestly felt that a lot of the work presented here was semi-pretentious, and a sort of "hipster-bait."

That being said, if you already like any of the creators involved - this book may be for you. but if you're a standard, stereotypical "Big Two" fan, look elsewhere.

I am a big fan of collections of comics by indy comic creators about mainstream super-hero types. Bizarro World,Bizarro Comics,Hellboy: Weird Tales, Vol. 1, and Hellboy: Weird Tales Volume 2 are all on my shelf next to this TPB. Strange Tales II would be there as well, but I am waiting for the soft-cover trade.

I felt like there was too much Bagge stuff and not enough of the other stuff though. Jhonen's short was my favorite, which is kind of funny since I am usually lukewarm to his work at best. I would put the collection overall on par with Bizzaro 1, but not as good as Bizzaro 2.

These strange tales are very weird and you have to be very into the marvel lore to get some of them. But a few of them are also kind of funny. I got a chuckle out of them. All-in-all, the book is just okay.

Cool take on marvel characters, most of it is pretty good. I'd buy volume 3.
This is almost excellent, but the stories seem uninspired and like assignments to get finished. However, a few are good fun, and esp enjoying Bagge's Spiderman. LOVE THAT BAGGE, MAN! Now I'm hoping that "Bizarro" is maybe a little better...but I'll find out...
