Due to some interest when I suggested I might post Jonni Future when I saw the last Tom Strong post I decided to introduce scansdaily to Jonni Future! So here's 2 and 2/3 pages from her 8 page story from the first issues of Tom Strong's Terrific Tales.

We begin the story introduced to Jonni Ray who has just inherited her Uncle's estate after he passed away. Among other things he was a story writer writing books and I think comics too of far away future's and thrilling space battles.

Sadly like many houses you don't always get what you bargain for but unlike horror movies this wasn't too bad.

Anthropomorphic tiger, yay! Jonni of course gives chase.

The tiger man leads her to am syterious super sci-fi ish room where he kinda implies she should put on a helmet...

Now that's a fun way to make money, do heroic deeds then come back home and write stories about them!

Hehe, I really love all the Jonni Future stories.

I love Jermaal.

And Jonni's outfit, when she finally changes into it.

Yay :) I really need to get Terrific Tales vol 2, so I can read the rest of stuff she's in. I wonder if she also has people continually expecting her to be a boy, maybe that's why the costume is so revealing.

The great thing is that Johnny Future wears pretty much the exact same thing, transparent top and poofy pants included.

Amazing. Oh I love Alan Moore.

Steve Moore. I don't know if Alan Moore had anything at all to do with the Jonni Future strip...well, other than creating the book in which the series appeared.

Steve Moore was Alan's mentor, and the stuff he did for the ABC books was incredible -- his Promethea strips with Eric Shanower are just jaw-droppingly wonderful.

Didn't he create the JOHNNY Future character, which Jonni Future is a spin-off of? Also the very concept of the Crepusculum?

Jonni Future was really just an excuse for Alan Moore to have Art Adams draw the everloving crap out of every square inch of paper, wasn't it?

As excuses go, that's not a bad one!

It is an excellent one.

That's what he does! That's all he does!

(And I, for one, have loved him for it since the New Mutants days, if not before.)

Isn't Jermaal a cheetah-man?

Don't be ridiculous. A tiger never changes its spots.

I read both trades recently and Jonni Future was really the best of the lot, better even than the Alan Moore-penned features. The series was exquisitely drawn and sexy as hell! It's very funny how everything revolved around sexual clich├ęs in science fiction, but Steve always gave it a twist!
