Astro City: Life in the Big City TP
The city’s leading super hero tries to be everywhere at once, and berates himself for every wasted second as he longs for just a moment of his own. A smalltime hood learns a hero’s secret identity, and tries to figure out how to profit from the knowledge. A beat reporter gets some advice from his editor on his first day on the job. A young woman tries to balance the demands of her family with her own hopes and desires. Despite the fantastic settings, the characters in these slice-of-life stories feel like real people, and that gives the stories real power.
The opening arc of the Eisner Award-winning series by Kurt Busiek and Brett Anderson is collected here with new cover art by Alex Ross! Collects issues #1-6 of ASTRO CITY.
