Meet Astro City's greatest hero, Samaritan, who uses his job as the newspaper to find out and stop crimes and disasters. For a hero who spends his day defending others, can he ever find time for himself?

A day in the life of Samaritan. We meet Samaritan, a Superman-like character, who only uses his job at a newspaper as a way to find out about crimes and dissasters he needs to stop. All he does in dream of taking time out for himself and just flying, but there is never any time in the day.
