    The interior art for Astro City #18 is amazing. Brent Eric Anderson has brought his A game fir this issue. The characters don't look weird and the poses and facial expressions are solid. Enough so to fully grasp the tone of the story. Astro City #18 is a must read. Fans of the series can explore some classic characters that haven't been explored before while new readers can jump into the series and get a taste of what Astro City is like and why they should collect the series. With a new way of exploring a hero's life, what happens next in the next issue of Astro City should be something to look forward to. Read Full Review

    Astro City #18 gets a little bit heavy, if you're really paying attention, but still delivers a little action, a little human drama and a lot of the usual AC quality. Read Full Review

    Although I've quite enjoyed the short one-off issues of the current series, Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson open a door here I'll gladly walk through and stick around to see what does happen when a super-hero decides (or is forced to) retire? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Busiek tackles another untrodden area in the superhero genre and gets some very good material out of it. Read Full Review

    Although the story matter isn't cutting edge (old heroes deal with age issues) it was handled really well. And the art was pretty decent.
