Meanwhile, Starfighter has been enjoying a hero's reward for decades. But with dark forces stirring in the cosmos, will he be called back to action? Or are there other paths? A look into the past, present and future of Astro City's cosmic guardian, featuring guest artist Jesos Merino. Collects ASTRO CITY #13, #22, #25, #27-28, and #31

Reviews for Astro City Vol 13 (GN): Honor Guard

Astro City reminds readers just how much fun Busiek and Anderson's series can be. It was absolutely worth the wait. --COMIC BOOK RESOURCES I don't often realize how much I miss Astro City when it's gone until it comes back and sweeps me up again. --MTV The most interesting new game in town, as far as caped crusaders are concerned. --THE WASHINGTON POST A stunningly imaginative piece of work. --AV CLUB/THE ONION
