    Unlike the majority of comics out there, Astro City manages to tell stories about characters who are interesting, intelligent, and act and behave like real people. These are stories that matter, that challenge the reader and make you care about what happens next. Read Full Review

    Though entirely focused on the purely superhero half of the series, Busiek doesn't lose sight of the humanity which makes the title's spirit. Read Full Review

    The focus may be different than the adventures we've gotten so far, but the storytelling is still just as good. Given what we've already seen over six issues I'd expect the role of the battered young boy to play a larger role in the story than we've seen so far, as will The Confessor who makes an appearance in the comic's final panel. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    I would suggest to pick this up to see a cast of characters that resemble a certain trinity of heroes finally in a story together and to learn more about Winged Victory. It's a good start to get into the series without having any idea what's going on while at the same time pleases long time fans of the series to finally see some of their favourite characters finally teaming up.
