    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
