    But in Astro City, the standard superhero story is always a way to show something else. In this case, it shows how tired some of the tropes are in the long-underwear funny pages. Read Full Review

    This issue is a must read. If you like this issue and wanted to see more on these heroes then I suggest go and pick the last three issues if you haven't read them yet. It's cool we get to see the three biggest heroes in the city that have been seen or just mention in most of the series. The only downside is that new readers will probably want to see more of these heroes in the next few issues. Even though the cast changes almost every issue as each issue is pretty much a one-shot, This, along with the last three issues are one of those stories you can basically give to any one you think will like it and will want to read more.

    Although the full effect of the smear campaign isn't yet clear, Winged Victory earns her hard-fought victory and proves her worthiness to continue her quest to help troubled and abused woman (and her first male student) across the globe as her story, thankfully, isn't over quite yet. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Chase Magnett Mar 14, 2014

    It's difficult to fault Busiek for tackling a complicated and important issue in the pages ofAstro City. He has successfully handled a wide variety of thematic material in the comic before. But his attempt to discuss feminism here falls flat, adding nothing new to the conversation. The story is meant to feel positive and it does, but resembles an "after school special" type of message. With very few compelling visuals for Anderson to sink his teeth into, this issue is remarkably ordinary. Read Full Review
