And Then I Read: ASTRO CITY 19

The saga of Quarrel continues, bouncing around from her present-day concerns about getting too old for the super-hero business, and episodes from her past, including family issues and early crime-fighting days. One constant is the ever-turbulent relationship with Crackerjack, her partner at home and sometimes at work. There IS a lot of quarreling in this story, but it’s a great partnership to read about. Reminds me some of Oliver Queen and Dinah Lance, but with its own unique flavor. Good comics; thoughtful writing by Kurt Busiek, nice art by Brent Anderson, and of course Alex Ross on the cover. Hey, the coloring and lettering are nice too!
