Astro City Vol. 5: Local Heroes by Kurt Busieck

Another great book from Busiek in the Astro City collection. This book brings together several different tales where the only consistent character as through the entire series, is the city itself. This volume focuses more on ordinary people living in Astro City and the heroic (or not so heroic) things that they do when they find themselves in situations that would really only occur because they live in Astro City. The book comes across as residents trying to explain what it is about Astro City and it's heroes that draws them there even though they are constantly being put in dangerous situations.
