    Basically this comic brings out what I loved about Astro City. The art may have thrown me off a bit at first, but it quickly grew on me. It has a unique character that you can easily follow and you hope to see more adventures like this one in the next few issues of Astro City. Read Full Review

    Astro City has been on a roll of strong, character-focused work as Kurt Busiek and his guest artists have been telling one-shot origins or spotlight issues for the various heroes of this universe. Read Full Review

    The interior art is by Joe Infurnari, filling in for Brent Anderson. The story and the art are justserviceable this time around - not bad, but not quite up to theusual standards - but as I've said before, an "average" Astro City story is better than some of the best you'll find in any other title.

    As stated the key to whether or not youll enjoy your visit to Astro City is how much affection you have for the silver age of comics. As great as the series is, its not surprising that stuff that actively critiqued the silver age like Watchmen are what got popular in the mainstream. On the other hand, injecting modern writing standards into the most exuberant and innocent age of comics usually ends with a realization of the monstrousness of silver age concepts, even Grant Morrison, one of the biggest silver age comic nerds there is, fell into that trap a few times so its nice that Astro City has actively resisted that path for so long, even if its kept the comic relegated to the upper echelons of the comics world and not much else. Still, not everything needs to be a TV show or a movie or even a New York Times bestseller, some things can just be for comic nerds, and thats Astro City. Read Full Review
