I love this story of a an ex-con who is just trying to scrape together a living and stay out of jail. Within minutes of being released from prison, however, he's back in his old neighborhood. He has to stay away from bad influences, but a series of murders brings him back into contact with criminals when the neighborhood asks him to find out who has behind the killings. A great Astro City story about what it means to be a hero and what it's like on the streets while superheros fly overhead.

This book in comic format is a story about Carl Donewicz a.k.a Steel Jack, an ex-supervillian who has been behind bars for 20 years. As he struggles to make it in the real world, former villian allies meet up with him and remind him of his past. **** out of *****.
