A look in at Steeljack, and how hes been getting by the last few years. When hes hired by a femme fatale from his past, hell wind up in deep trouble, with no one to turn to. Part 1 of a 3-part sequel to The Tarnished Angel, one of ASTRO CITYs most popular stories.

    "Astro City" #32 is a strong opening to a new storyline, one that I hope continues for at least several months. Busiek and Anderson's sequel to "Tarnished Angel" is off to a strong start; super-powered crime noir is a strange and specialized genre, but they turn out a real winner. Until the next chapter hits in March, I know what I'll be doing: re-reading the original storyline. This is a real winner, folks. Read Full Review

    Spend just five minutes in Astro City and Kurt Busiek will having you lamenting the constant reboots of current superheroes and pining for the days of old. Astro City is a world where history has been allowed to fully play out, heroes have been able to grow and age and change. Read Full Review

    As to the how, I'm looking forward to see that be played out over the next two issues and learn where it all went wrong (again) for Steeljack. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Astro City #32 kicks off this story arc nicely, giving readers a former goon to cheer for with Steeljack. He's likable and a real ‘every man' character, a guy just looking for some peace and quiet, so I can only imagine what's coming for him now that he's been dragged back into his past. Busiek and Anderson's Astro City continues to be a sure bet and a gem in the comic book market. Read Full Review
