5.0 out of 5 stars As my first story to the astro city world, it was brilliant., 28 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Astro City: The Dark Ages, Book 1 (Hardcover)
Right, I had always wanted to read astro city and didnt know where to start, so I started with this story when it came out as a comic book series. I hadnt realised at this point that the dark age would be as significant as it is in astro city, which any reader of earlier stories such as life in the big city would know.
Like usual, the charm of astro city is due to the interesting perspective the story is told from, in this case two brothers. One, a police officer, the other, a thief. It shows how the city transcended into a knightmare and what brought it out and the remains left behind which even several decades on in other stories, leave not simple a sadness but a shame for all who lived through the dark age.
Personally, I enjoyed it as you can see. You dont need to be an previous astro city reader to enjoy it but personally, reading other stories such as confessions and life in the big city before this would have made me appreciate the significance of this tale a bit more.
