And Then I Read: ASTRO CITY #38

astrocity38This one really is the cat’s meow. Cover artist Alex Ross, writer Kurt Busiek and interior artist Brent Anderson are in the groove and moving to the rhythm of heroine Jazzbaby and Romeyn Falls in 1928, when the living was good and the music was hot. Even letterers Roshell and Betancourt and colorist Pantazis are at the top of their game. Jazzbaby is delightfully airy and art deco, but when she feels evil lurking beneath the Alhambra Theatre, she doesn’t hesitate to take it on. The occultist Destiné has a special show planned for his audience, and the ancient evil he plans to unleash will not entertain them. Jazzbaby gets some help, but the forces against the heroes are powerful. Who will call the tune?

Highly recommended.
