    Writer Kurt Busiek and artist Brent Anderson have a flair for telling this kind of story focused on those on the periphery of the super-powerful individuals and eventful moments in the world of Astro City while continuing to deliver one of the best monthly comics available. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    All in all this is still a must read. While I may have a problem with some of the art. I can't argue that the story still got me interested in these new characters and I hope to see more of them sometime in future issues. Which sadly may not happen for a long while. It still has that charm fans of Astro City know and love and like most issues of the series is a good jumping off point for new readers. Especially for those who prefer fantasy more then the usual sci-fi stuff that is seen in comic books. It's a good start to get into the series (or comics in general). Read Full Review

Everyone from "Doctor Strange" fans to just those who like a good character study should check this comic out. Once again, Busiek and Anderson have crafted a winner. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Chase Magnett Apr 10, 2014

    Astro City #11 is a return to form for the series. It evokes empathy for normal people by setting them side-by-side with superheroes. When the comparison is made, it's hard to tell the difference between those with and without superpowers. Read Full Review
