User Review  - Brian - Goodreads

Old, but a lot of fun, and with some really interesting storytelling techniques that I'm surprised aren't used more today. Read full review

Review: Astro Boy, Vol. 5 (Astro Boy #5)

User Review  - Andrew Perron - Goodreads

Astro Boy is an amazing series. It's an odd fusion of Isaac Asimov, Gardner Fox, and Tex Avery. It often ignores the material aspects of technology in order to play up the metaphorical implications, like a more complex Silver Age comic. Fascinating. Read full review

The classic Astor Boy, and I had never read it! Better than I thought it would be, as I expected something silly, but it was very entertaining. Fast read, as much manga is, but this in a sense started ... Read full review

User Review  - Barry - Goodreads

Ham-fisted story-telling and a really, really unnerving, masogynist ending made me give this volume two stars at first--and my addition of another star is still siting uneasily. But many other parts ... Read full review
