    Busiek and Randall round out "Astro City" #35 with a mystery about the Weirdies, Mister Drama, the Landlord and the various Jack-in-the-Box heroes that continues to unfold. Add that to the story of being a legacy, and you get a comic that feels densely plotted and more than your money's worth. "Astro City" #35 is a reminder that the superhero genre can give us rich, interesting characters and plots, so long as talented creators like Busiek and Randall are at the helm. Read Full Review

    While his family digs at the archaeological site of the death of the first Jack-in-the-Box, Jerome's narrates the history of the hero from his grandfather to father, to the current incarnation of sidekick turned hero. Before he can catch us up on the full story things get interesting with the arrival of a new villain as, thankfully, this storyline will continue for one more issue. Must-read. Read Full Review
