Last night I finally got my copy of Kurt Busiek’s Astro City: Local Heroes and it was definitely worth the wait.
This series of graphic novels is a brilliant post-modern look at superheroes and how interactions with ordinary citizens might happen were they real. This book is a collection of un-related stories all set in Astro City and, as usual, the stories are poignant and real, focusing on human interactions and relationships, even while the setting is exploding into the realm of the fantastic.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait quite so long for the next installment, but, no matter how long it takes, I’ll be looking forward to it.
