    Brent Anderson is back at the drawing board, still channeling his inner Neal Adams(not that thats a bad thing), but he seems to have added a layer of Jos LuisGarcia Lopez. But above it all is a style that makes Andersons work stand on its own merits. Read Full Review

    It's hard to judge part one of “Who Broke the Broken Man?” as so much of the story is left untold. Next month's concluding issue certainly has plenty of questions to answer, however, and plenty of dots left to connect. Although he's popped up here and there over the current run of the series, so far the Broken Man has been more of a distraction than anything else. To properly judge this two-issue arc, and the number of appearances we've seen in previous issues, we'll have to wait and see just where the character's meandering story takes us, and what it all means for him… and for Astro City. Worth a look. Read Full Review
