There is not an introduction to the new Astro City hardback. That is a bit disappointing. Those introductions are usually fun. It is still worth buying, even if the Gentleman’s story is yet to be told. Writer Busiek hinted that there is a story to tell.
Nicola Scott continues to do really good work on Earth 2. She is possibly underrated. Her art is consistently good and she has done well on updating several of these characters looks. If she could only somehow manage to draw quickly enough, the book could go bi-weekly.
Wally West makes his first appearance in the new timeline soon.
If Beta Ray Bill dies in the latest issue of Nova, I will be disappointed.
