    He is a resident of Kiefer Square who attempts to reform after serving his time. At some point one of us used the term "American Chibi," and I liked it so much I wrote it down and saved it, determined to create a character with that name for "Astro City. Faithie and Meg have grown up, too -- Meg's out of school and working, and Faithie's in graduate school at Stanford so their lives have changed completely. In the Confession arc from the second volume of the series, even his new sidekick struggles to know more about his mentor.

    So that by the time we got to issue six, you had the sense that this is what the series is about, the range of it. Regular Batman is not going to be 50 years old. Active since The Dark Age was set in the s and s and ran 16 issues. So, in some cases the legacy is built-in. So, the idea that not only would people like it enough for us to survive past six issues, but they would like it enough to arrive to issues and still be going comfortably and strong is amazing to me, in retrospect.

    It's funny -- when the announcement was made, people online kept asking me if this meant we were suddenly going to have nudity, swearing and smoking in the book. Recycles and enhances his weaponry from discarded trash. So yes, Vertigo's a nice place for us -- everyone there has been absolutely welcoming. I want readers to meet him through the story. One of those is the Broken Man in his battle with the Oubor. We certainly could have told that story about a new family, simply by introducing a new character who's at a crossroads in his life.

Kurt Busieks Astro City Vol. I book

For much of its history it maintained seven active members; more recently, the group has expanded considerably. He is self-aware, but not cynical. We're all happy about it -- not because it means change, but because it's a good fit with what we're already doing.

Essentially a Mad scientist who uses alchemy and magic to warp reality. Busiek has been toying with the character's concept for years and considered him for stories in his "Superman" and "Avengers" runs before deciding to save him for "Astro City.

He is a resident of Kiefer Square who attempts to reform after serving his time. After the bleak subject matter of The Dark Age, this new 1 works hard to bring a sense of fun and wonder back to the title.

Later tapped by former associates to investigate the string of "Black Mask" murders; later became a licensed private investigator. Why decide to return to these characters and not introduce a new family for the series?

And then, the door opens… I love this moment for a number of reasons, not the least of which being that it immediately grabbed me as real and engaging, even though these characters were essentially unknown to me when I first read it.

The name of the race pays homage to comics fan and professional E. A one-stop shop for all things video games. During this time, Busiek had many letters published in comic book letter columnsand originated the theory that the Phoenix was a separate being who had impersonated Jean Greyand that therefore Grey had not died — a premise which made its way from freelancer to freelancer, and which was eventually used in the comics.

So many ideas have built up over the years that there isn't enough time to get 'em all out at once. As we roll forward, we'll see how the new context affects us organically.

In part, me being sick for a number of years lost us opportunities to do stories I would have wanted to do, set in the present at a time when the characters were such-and-such an age. Astro City is a book that has never had to rely on gimmicks to create interest, and DC could take a few lessons from Busiek and company.

As part of the Honor Guard, they fight with confidence. And that became an interesting story to find. So we're a book that may be aimed at an older sensibility, but not in a way that needs to chase off any other readers who might be interested in the stories we tell.Oct 13,  · It can be daunting to dive into a comic book series that's been around for more than 20 years.
