Astro City character design is always top-notch, but Blue Knight might be a new favorite. Solid stories, always a good time visiting Astro City.

This book, while still very enjoyable, did not make me ponder life and humanity as much as some of the other Astro City books. However, it had a PHENOMENAL story at the end that was a tribute to 9/11. The book is worth reading for that story alone, and the rest is a nice addition as well.
