Astro City: Family Album - Kurt Busiek, Brent Anderson, Alex Ross

This is another of the Astro City books, with a loosely-connected collection of stories. A couple have to do with families: Astra, youngest of the Furst Family, wants to find out what it's like to be a normal girl; Jack-in-the-Box is visited by some creepy versions of himself, claiming to be his sons from the future. There's also one about the Junkman, who succeeds in pulling off a great heist but is upset because nobody knows it was him; and one about Leo the cartoon lion who was brought to life unexpectedly.

I still like the Astro City concept and stories, but this particular book wasn't one of my favorites.
