    With Tillie stealing nearly all of the Broken Man's thunder it's a little unclear what lesson he wanted to impart to the readers in this issue. However, Tillie's story is easily entertaining enough to forgive her. I wouldn't mind hearing more from the girl and learn where he path goes from here. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    I left this issue sitting on my stack of comics unread for a while, but now that I've read it, wow, it's a really great issue. I loved when Tillie stepped forward to take over the narration from the Broken Man and the idea of her creating The Gentleman as a psychic projection, and holding on to her childhood forever was really interesting. This was a super-charming issue and yet another example of how "Astro City" is just great comics.
