What secrets hide in Astro City's past? And what does the Broken Man fear? Take a look into the days before Astro City was renamed as you meet the Blasphemy Agency, watch Dame Progress battle Mister Cakewalk, and learn what lies behind the mask of Lord Saampa, the Serpent's Tongue, in a trio of revelatory adventures. Hints, portents, and mysteries unfold, as the Broken Man's story is explored.

Again the wonderful folks at Vertigo bring us a tale involving the little people of the Astro City universe. The adventures of Martha and her friends is just delightful. And the message that just because I have powers doesn't mean I want to fight is inspirational. Plus the Laugh-In reference was inspired. Again I wonder while other titles can't learn a thing or two from this gem.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
