Hello Noble World!

July 28, 2008

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.

for justice

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.

Hello Joe and Jerry!

June 16, 2008

Five pages out of the story arc – Up, Up and Away – in Action Comics and Superman. Written by Kurt Busiek.

Kurt’s stories are awesome. They leave me with a sense of nobility… a goodness. The Big S. He’s the best there is… no two ways about it!!

Up

And up.

and up

yehaaa

And oops…

oh mannnn

And whoa…

Superman

And what happens when you see Superman, returned from the Infinite Crisis having lost his powers and not seen over Metropolis for almost a year, standing by the window in your office? 😀

Awesome!!

I bought this TPB! I definitely recommend a buy on this one for anyone who’s into comic books. Imagine Lex Luthor getting his hands on a Kryptonian battleship capable of taking on an entire planet teeming with an advanced civilisation. And the only thing that ship wasn’t designed to taken on – Superman!!

Up Up and Away on Action Comics and Superman – written by Kurt Busiek and Geoff Johns for DC Comics. Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
