A look into the life of Wolfspider, the Australian Honor Guard member. When Queenslaw, a cartoon super hero team from Wolfspiders youth, suddenly turns up as real heroes, he has to deal with his origin, his childhood dreams, and deadly danger. Guest art by Australian comics star Gary Chaloner (Jackaroo, Red Kelso, John Law). Plus: a fistful of Australian super-villains, too! Its a whole theme thing!

    Astro City #28 is a must read because we get a unique story with another featured character explored in a new light. Any reader should check out the latest issue since most of the issues of Astro City are easy to jump into. You don't need to know the characters backstory or have read previous stories to enjoy it either. Read Full Review

    The heroes brought to life storyline is a common one in comics. Even if the resolution of the twist is the weakest aspect of the story, there's still plenty to enjoy here including the art of Gary Chaloner who does a good job of fitting his style to match the established art of the series by Brent Anderson far better than we saw in the previous issue (which, while certainly not awful, simply didn't look or feel like Astro City). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    "Astro City" #28 is a fun, if not quite groundbreaking, comic; it's got familiar beats, but Busiek still handles them well and crafts an entertaining story. This month, though, it's Chaloner and Von Grawbadger who steal the show and push this up from above average to full-on great. Once again, "Astro City" delivers the goods. Read Full Review

    It feels like this series needs a little kick in the butt to keep from burning readers out. Read Full Review
