In this episode, Marty, Tim, and Nick finish Vol 1 of Kurt Busiek's magnum opus, Astro City. This volume is exceptionally difficult to find, so you may have to do some digging on Ebay -- but it is well worth adding to your collection. Last week we did issues 0-2, today we touch on issues 2-6.
We discuss the characters, themes, and art work that make Astro City a beautiful nod to the capes and cowls we love, all while pushing the limits of what we can do with a good superhero story.
We have yet to give this a Kirby Score™ folks, but rest assured it going to be a good one!
