It's the final issue of ASTRO CITY...for now. Michael Tenicek lost his world years ago. Now he may lose another, as ordinary life among the extraordinary takes a shattering turn. A character-focused finale to the ongoing Vertigo ASTRO CITY series, and a launch point for its new form. Guest-starring the Hanged Man, Honor Guard and more.

    Astro City #52 is a tremendous conclusion both to Michael Tenicek's story and this volume of the series. It reminds us that superhero comics are not fantasy but a representation of the greatness that lies within us. Read Full Review

    The story doesn't so much end as move on " Michael's life is going to continue, with him doing good in the little ways he's chosen. That's the beauty of Astro City. It's a series without a main character, because its main character is its city and the people in it both spectacular and human. Read Full Review

    The issue deals with the conflict in the group led by the woman who refused to believe Michael's story and the others who were confused by it. There's healing here, but no quick fixes (despite what the Hanged Man offers). Like always, Astro City reminds us it's a complicated world out there in this fitting finale. Must-read.

    Given that cover, I thought this would be heartbreaking. It's not. It's still good, but not what I expected.
