This is a warm story. It soothes.
This is the magic of Kurt Busiek’s Astro City. A comic book unlike any other I’ve read so far. And I’ve certainly read lots. From the mainstream to the underground to the mediocre. But Astro City is way up there, in the highest reaches of the comicbookfandom.
This is one of the truly rare and few comic books than brings alive the whole spandex superhero genre to a new level.
To read a comic book about a solid superhero team effort and explorations and adventure – read the JLA.
To read about a group of beings whose attitude kicks ass and they kick harder than ever before – read the Authority.
To read simply the best stories – the characters that bring nobility and stories that make you want to read more comics and believe in the goodness that shines through pretty much everything – read Kurt Busiek’s Astro City.
It got me hook, line, sinker and right down to the depths of blue and warm fuzzy sunshine – a joy of being in this world where men tell tales which are worth listening to and reading over and over again.
Astro City is an Eisner Award Winner (a fitting award too!) – and that makes it a definite winner in my list of comicbooks and collectibles! Written by Kurt Busiek, the series is co-created and illustrated by Brent Anderson with character designs and painted covers by Alex Ross.
Kurt Busiek, sir, you rock!!
