Lover Quarrel is the latest Astro City collection. This one features Crackerjack and Quarrel. They’re getting older. Another story in the collection features a talking gorilla who wants to play in a band.
This is good. Quarrel’s background is explored and it is interesting. Her father was a super villain also called Quarrel. This is her first time in the spotlight. She has appeared before, she was in the Tarnished Angel storyline and some other issues.
The story about the talking gorilla who wants to be in a band is fun. It is less serrious than Quarrel’s story but is still entertaining and interesting.
As always, the creative team is writer Kurt Busiek and artist Brent Anderson. Their work remains good after all these years. Anderson might be a bit unappreciated.
