it was amazing
bookshelves: graphic, adult, life, superheroes, ya, short-stories

It's been a while since I read the other four Astro City titles, but this fifth book reminded me why they stand out from all of the graphic novels I read. Great meditations on the human condition at the intersection of heroism and mundanity. Everything about them is done with excellence.

Quotes Chris Liked

Kurt Busiek
“She said things that'd have sounded like cliches--but when they're said by the woman you love in the middle of the night, it's different.

I said things that sounded like cowboy-movie junk, even when they were coming out of my mouth. But I meant them.”
