Love the art and spotting the references. ( )

I still love Astro City now just as much as I loved the first one. I was really excited to see that this volume focused on a couple of female characters in addition to Samaritan and Silver Agent (I'm not saying that typically they don't or that they are normally chauvenist or anything like that, I'm just saying I was psyched to see two female characters that had never gotten their own story before **end disclaimer**)

I thought that watching Beautie try to find her origins was very interesting. Even though she was a robot and had funny ways of handling things and occasionally said the wrong thing she still felt very human a lot of the time. Everyone wants to know where they come from.

Astra's graduation tale and her dealings with a jerk boyfriend also felt very human and could honestly be related to by any woman on any continent. Her struggles to figure out exactly what to do with her life also felt very familiar. Everyone feels overwhelmed by choice sometimes (although maybe not in the current economy) and everyone wants to feel like they are making the right decision, but mostly it's just a leap of faith that you are finding the right place for yourself.

The Silver Agent story was definitely kind of gut wrenching. I don't remember ever reading about exactly how he ended up being accused of murder so I'm hoping we get a chance to find out.

Infidel's story was way more interesting then I thought it would be. Yes he is a horrible villain bent on world destruction, however in his way he is just trying to get his home back. This story definitely makes him a very human person while still managing to make me feel like he is this unaproachable towering villain.

Astro City always manages to take the superheroes and make them feel like everyman while still leaving them on their lofty perch, which I think is extremely impressive. I love that we follow the city and get the opportunity to learn about so many different characters. There is a lot going on in this series and it all deserves attention. I especially loved the note at the end reminding us that every character even minor ones need lots of attention b/c you never know when someone will become a major character for a book. ( )
