365 Days of Defiance, Day 43: Steel Fightin' Man

At the end of a long story arc (made even longer by creator health-related delays in its publishing schedule), we catch up with Astro City ex-con and Robert Mitchum-lookalike Steeljack when he finally faces off against El Conquistador, the quite-mad hero-turned-supervillain behind a plot to kill supers.


Panels from Kurt Busiek's Astro City (Wildstorm/Homage 1996 series) #20 (January 2000); script by Kurt Busiek, pencils by Brent Anderson, inks by Will Blyberg, colors by Alex Sinclair, letters by John Roshell and Wes Abbott

He's badly outpowered. Will he give up? Heck no.


But will he succeed? Um, possibly not.



This ain't the end, of course! Tune in tomorrow!
