    Astro City puts you inside the characters' heads so well you'll be right there with them throughout the story. This issue is no different. What makes it so unique is how it brings you to conclusions based on the events and thoughts of the character. Read Full Review

    This issue was a killer. I absolutely loved the story of Mister Manta, his seclusion, and discovery of what life is like after more than thirty years of isolation. "Astro City" can provide individual, one-issue stories better than almost any other title (and I can't think of one better), and this is a great self-contained story. I also loved the art of Matthew Clark. Awesome stuff.
