trampled by dinosaurs

Astro City Dark Age 4 of 4

I think Busiak's writing on ACDA is philosophical regarding the super hero vs. real life world, with the added struggle of the orphen brothers who took very different roads in life. The artwork depicting Charles and Royal Williams, the two page spreads of the battles, and even the melancholy feel of sitting at the bar are great. Alex Ross has a dramatic cover of the Silver Agent, set to be executed, sitting in the electric chair. The light coming from his body armor draws your eye against the dark background.

Doesn't this sentence intrigue you to read ACDA?
"Not that it made them safe from the quakes, but at least they wouldn't be trampled by dinosaurs"
