    Default REVIEW: Astro City, #13

    Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson's "Astro City" #13 is deliberately told out of order, but no matter what sequence you read the pages in, it's still a fantastic issue that merges love and art.

    Aw, folks, if you're not reading this book, you're missing out.

    Fun, hopeful, and for the most part, light. If you're complaining about dark, grim 'n gritty books, this is the book for you.

    This was Anderson's return to the comic after a one-issue vacation. I thought the full pages of the Dancing Master were powerful, as described in the review, but I was blown away by the very first page, which was a model of silent story-telling and well-balanced panel construction. Utterly magnificent, in a very quiet way. The cover by Alex Ross was excellent, too - maybe his best yet of the new run, with its Peter Max inspiration. As for the story, how amazing is it that Busiek continues to write stories that are so intricate, and so experimental, and so heartfelt – all at the same time, and after writing this series for so many years? That's a great testament to his gifts, and also the best advertisement around for artists owning their own material.
