    Astro City #31 is another great chapter in one of the greatest series ever crafted in the medium of comics. High praise? Damn right it is, but it is completely worthy of those words. Astro City never lets me down and this month's issue by Busiek, Merino and Sinclair hits that sweet spot that every cape-comic fan should make room for in their reading. Read Full Review

    I don't know if or when the series might step back in to give us a look at the creature's new life with the Honor Guard, who accepts the Living Nightmare when it shows courage and true heroism and a driving desire for change, but in a series with countless nooks and crannies that might go unexplored for years, its good to know that the creature has earned a new life. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    "Astro City" #31 is a fun little issue, and one that I hope gets followed up before too long. It's another reminder why this series is dependably worth buying and is able to use different viewpoints and perceptions in ways that stand out. Busiek and Merino's comic takes a familiar face and gives us a nice twist. Read Full Review
