And Then I Read: ASTRO CITY 33

Writer Kurt Busiek, cover artist Alex Ross and interior artist Brent Anderson continue their film noir story featuring Steeljack and Cutlass, heroes past their glory days trying to unravel a mystery. Crimes are being committed using the weapons and methods of retired people like Cutlass, putting them back on the wanted list, even though they know nothing of those crimes. It’s a clever ploy masterminded by someone who knows the hero and villain community well—but who? The detective work takes them to a man who repairs broken weapons, then to a restaurant with a super-villain theme.  Great work by everyone involved, and the atmosphere on this storyline is very appealing.

Recommended.
