  1. Once upon a time there was this super fantastic comic book but then the writer came up with this convulted 16 issue series and it shipped really late and then the only person reading it was a dork named Urthona.

    But he still kinda liked it.

    Just not as much as the earlier stuff that was better.

  2. It is not really running late these days, they just took time a month off and put the 2 astra books out. I am pretty sure they are done with all 4 books of book 4 and maybe the next character special. Then we will get back to the Astro City series proper. I also do not think this series has been bad, it is just that the other stiff was so good and with immediate payoff.

  3. I enjoyed this issue…Astro City is still one of my fave pleasures.  Lot of great comic books this week.

  4. Anyone else thing the plant creature looks like Alan moore?
