Astro City is published currently by Wildstorm/DC but originated at Image Comic, allowing writer Kurt Busiek to team up with his art partner on Marvels, Alex Ross, to design a new universe of super heroes, illustrated by Brent Anderson. The end result is one of the greatest, freshest and most unique takes on the super hero genre within an imaginative world full of heroes, villains, history and great stories.
The first mini series is collected in trade paperback, Life in the Big City, and is an anthology of one issue stories about several of the characters, such as Samaritan, Crackerjack, Jack in The Box and Winged Victory. It’s the perfect introduction to the world of Astro City.
The first mini series paved the way for the second trade paperback, and probably the best story arc in Astro City‘s history, Tarnished Angel, telling the tale of Steeljack, a low level villain who served his time and tries to live the straight life. The recent stories in Astro City, The Dark Age, are a period piece of a darker time during the 1970s in Astro City.
One of the near perfect comics in existence, Astro City continues to
be one of the shining spots in comics and we hope that Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson continue their series for a very, very, very long time.
