Parasha: Astro City, June 28th reading

Geez, it's weird to keep having these setups of big events, then cutting away to different things! I'm used to huge long story arcs with comics, usually with a big song and dance included.

Yay, Samaritan taking some time for a personal life! Woot!

Man, talk about the ultimate celebrity status. And with wings and a cape, there is just NO attempting to wear sunglasses and blend in.

I really wasn't expecting him to go with the whole "reveal the secret identity" thing though! I'm glad though, he needs this downtime.

Also: backstory! Yay! It should be, like, labelled "Samaritan: Origins!" Maybe marketed as a mini...

Hah, a little bit of a fight, but a happy ending in general. Now that's what I like. Not everything has to be doom and gloom! Right?

It's also interesting to see the different origins, and see how they effect just how different superheroes go about their jobs, and view the world. Now I kinda wish we got that for some of the others, although there's probably not really space or time here.
