Another phenomenal volume of Astro City. This volume focuses on different families found in Astro city, from the First Family to a new regular family that just moved to the neighborhood. As always the stories are interesting, moving and incredible. Just can't gush enough. ( )

Although this one has a similar style to the first book, Life in the Big City, I think Family Album is better constructed. There are four stories in this one with the uniting threads much more easily visible. The stories are much more even and interesting than those in the first volume as well. ( )
