cavemold's Astro City #1 - Through Open Doors, Part One review

The Doors.

The good: Kurt Busiek's beloved astro city is back in action! We meet new charcters and visit classic characters as well. We see Samaritan , the confessor and many more! YOU are apart of the comic, which is really cool id say. Brent art hasn't lost its touch over the years either. This issue is completely new reader friendly and will want to seek out past Astro city's trades.

The bad:Nothing bad here, everyone was well developed. The art was great and Alex Ross Covers are always pretty to look at.

Verdict: I highly recommend any comic book fan to try this out. If you want try a pure superhero comic this is the way to go!

Busiek set the bar so high with the original series nothing else has compared since. When I picked up this issue today and sat down to read it, not once but three times, it felt like an old friend had finally come back to visit. The Good (Really Great): The story is engaging and fun without moving to fast or ...
