And Then I Read: ASTRO CITY 36

Continuing and concluding the story from issue 35, a long-standing vendetta against three generations of the hero Jack-in-the-Box comes back to life when the villain Drama Queen takes up the fight begun by her grandfather, Drama King. Amid the battles, new information comes to light that surprises both sides and changes long-held perceptions about what really happened to cause the mutual destruction of the first hero and villain. Kurt Busiek’s story is as good as always, and the excellent fill-in art by Ron Randall on both issues is a joy to behold. Even the inherently silly expanding legs and arms of Jack-in-the-Box looks believable here, no easy task. Well done all around!
