"...breathtakingly imaginative... Astro Boy and the God of Comics will set your inner 10-year-old free." - Peter Marks, Washington Post
"...ingenious... You donít have to be a manga maniac or a devotee of anime to enjoy Astro Boy and the God of Comics... What Power has done with this little show is tell the unique yet universal story of an artist and his obsession by yanking you into his work and his world, using every theatrical trick in the book. What a way to travel." - Jane Horwitz, The Washingtonian
