Astro City #1- Oh, oh, oh! Astro City is back in an ongoing series from DC/Vertigo. Of course, this is Astro City so "ongoing" is a relative term but I am glad it is back and this issue showed why. After such a long absence, it’s nice to see that writer Kurt Busiek has not lost the inherent weirdness of Astro City. Breaking the fourth wall, a heroine called American Chibi, or even using a character from years ago that most people would have forgotten by now; it’s all here in one issue. Welcome (back) to Astro City!
Green Lantern #21- With writer Geoff Johns leaving Green Lantern after a 9 year run, there’s a lot of interest on how writer Robert Venditti would do as the GL writer. If this issue is any indication, the GL title seems to be in good hands. Venditti has Hal Jordon’s character down and showed humor when moving his pieces around. It wasn't perfect, Carol’s mini-breakup with Hal was too forced, but in the grand scheme of things, this issue wasn’t the total reboot everyone feared.
