I doubt there is another thread on this, I did a search (Which sucks) and nothing came up, such an inspiring comic series needs it’s own thread.
For those not in the know Astro City is a comic series created by Kurt Busiek. Brent Anderson did most interior art, and Alex Ross did covers and some story art. Astro City is a comic that takes a more serious and dark spin on the typical superhero archtypes. Many familiar type of character exist in this world, but the tone is way different. I always compare it to Sin City for some reason, it has a familiar type of edge to it.
Every story arc is different and usually focuses on a certain hero (Or villain). What is interesting is they are filled with other unique characters that you absolutely want to know more about. Once I saw the statue and heard the tragic stuff about the Silver Agent I was psyched, and finally a series on him came out, you bet I ate that shit up.
Anyways discuss anything Astro City based here, my current favorite arcs are Astro City: Tarnished Angel and the Dark Ages.
