ASTRO CITY #1-52 (Kurt Busiek / Brent Anderson, Alex Ross)

Après trois ans de hiatus suite à la fermeture du label Wildstorm; Kurt Busiek, Brent Anderson et Alex Ross sont prêt à reprendre leur analyse du comics mainstream débuté en 1995 dans les pages de la série Astro City. A travers le point de vue des citoyens et des héros archétypaux de la ville, Astro City retrace l’évolution du mythe super-héroïques américain depuis sa création.

Le premier numéro sortira en juin 2013 chez DC Comics. Cependant, l’auteur tient a préciser que l’univers d’Astro City reste en marge des autres séries de l’éditeur malgré l’assimilation de Wildstorm et Vertigo depuis le New 52.

Ouuuhhhh le retour d’Astro City.

Et le retour du Busiek, aussi.
Je ne le voyais plus trop, depuis sa participation au truc sur Kirby chez Dynamite, et je suis content de le voir revenir.

Jim

Il a eu des problèmes de santé, il me semble.

Oui, il y a des années, il a fait un empoisonnement à cause de plombages dentaires, d’après ce que j’ai compris. Et j’ai entendu dire que ça a eu des séquelles récentes, mais j’en sais guère plus. Je suis content de le revoir en selle.

Personne n’a lu les premiers chapitres? ^^

Perso, j’attends le TPB. :wink:

Je pense que je prendrais le TPB aussi… car je sais pas si je vais avoir la patience pour la VF (surtout si ils rééditent les précédents) ^^
