Praise for Kurt Busiek's Astro City:
"Kurt Busiek's brilliant series Astro City tries to answer that question by focusing on the ordinary people whose lives are affected by epic battles fought in the skies. Busiek's stories, vibrantly illustrated by Brent Anderson, focus on such unlikely subjects as a bellman at an Astro City hotel, or a superhero's ex-girlfriend, or a young reporter who stumbles on a superheroic scoop."—SLATE

This,the third volume in the series,Introduces us to a divorced dad and his daughters,newly arrived in Astro City,as they experience how potentially dangerous living in a city of superhumans can be...we then meet ten-year-old Astra Furst,who possesses formidable powers like the rest of the Fantastic-Fouresque First Family,yet her discovery of the children's game hopscotch takes her on her mission of discovery...an elderly inventor,forced into retirement,turns supervillain but soon learns there may not be such a thing as the perfect crime...the clown-like hero Jack-In-The-Box is confronted with unsettling visitors from the future,shortly before receiving monumental news from his wife...this collection concludes with the poignant tale of Looney Leo,a cartoon character accidently brought to life.
Busiek,Anderson and Ross are certainly in fine form here,creating a collection of tales that,in many ways,hearken back to the Silver Age of Comics,yet are still enthralling enough to appeal to the generation brought up on graphic novels and the deconstruction of the superhero.
