It’s been a long wait for fans of Kurt Busiek’s “Astro City” since DC Comics’ Wildstorm banner closed its doors in 2010. However, that long wait is finally over as MTV Geek reports that “Astro City” will return June 5 under the polishing banner of DC proper. The ongoing series by Busiek, Brent Anderson and Alex Ross will continue from the last arc of the series, the Silver Agent two-part that served as an epilogue to “Astro City: The Dark Age,” and follows in the same vein of exploration into the people of Astro City and the superhero genre as a whole.
“We have plans to visit other planets, to reveal more about Astro City’s past, to explore the life of super-powered people who never chose to become heroes or villains, and lots more,” Busiek told MTV Geek. “I even intend to finally get to my talking gorilla story, and the one about the group of former kid sidekicks who get an old crime-mobile from the 40s working and head out on a road trip as they try to figure out what to do with their adult careers.”
