They go so quickly, but this series stays really good. The first story is the real standout in this volume, complete with a robot and creator who clearly act as sort of twisted mirror images to Astro and Dr. Tenma. But, of course, it helps that there's a lot of crazy action and adventure.

Astro Boy is an amazing series. It's an odd fusion of Isaac Asimov, Gardner Fox, and Tex Avery. It often ignores the material aspects of technology in order to play up the metaphorical implications, like a more complex Silver Age comic. Fascinating.
