    As the story moves forward, resolving a major part of the overarching plot and clearing the way for the Standard to begin superhero-ing anew, it's starting to feel a lot like a fable. There's something interesting going on here, something about innocence and cities and what it means to be a hero, and as it blends humour and introspection and an eye for the details that distinguished the comics we grew up with, "The Standard" sets a new standard for meta superhero stories. This is some fine comic-making, and it will be a treat to see how it all turns out. Read Full Review
