Rusty’s Reading List 2019 | March 28, 2019

I said I only had two volumes of Astro City, so here is the other one!
The first volume was all single issue stories. This time we get a longer arc. I’ll admit I prefer the one-offs, but Confession is still incredibly well done. Virtually every aspect of the story is a standard comic trope, but Kurt Busiek manages to breathe new life into each one and make them his own.

The revelation of who the Confessor is was very well done. Still, with all of that, the best issue in the book was the Hanged Man issue that wraps things up. It is the one-and-done stories that stand out.

2019 Reading List

Astro City Vol. 2 – Confession – Busiek / Anderson / more
Astro City Vol. 1 – Life In the Big City – Busiek / Anderson / Ross
Animal Man Vol. 2 – Origin of the Species – Grant Morrison / Various Artists
