Just started getting back into comics. Please forgive the absurdity of my questions.
While browsing through the comic book store racks, the cover of "Astro City: Life in the Big City" caught my attention. Since finishing the book, I have purchased Confession and Family Album. I have some questions and was wondering if someone could clarify.
- Are some of the Astro City heroes intended to resemble other big name heroes (Samaritan to Superman)?
-Reading the book, I sometimes got a kitschy feeling - without the low quality implication. Especially with heroes like Jack-in-the-Box,Crackerjack, and BeatNik. Is the book intended to give that feel?
I checked wikipedia and it represents the following collected works for Astro City:
* Astro City: Life in the Big City ( collects Astro City Vol. 1 #1-6)
* Astro City: Confession (collects Astro City Vol. 2 #1/2, 4-9)
* Astro City: Family Album (collects Astro City Vol. 2 #1-3, 10-13)
* Astro City: Tarnished Angel (collects Astro City Vol. 2 #14-20)
* Astro City: Local Heroes (collects Astro City Vol. 2 #21-22, Astro City: Local Heroes #1-5, Astro City Special: Supersonic, "After the Fire")
* Astro City - The Dark Age book one: Thicker Than Water (no ISBN yet, collects Astro City - The Dark Age #1-4)
Am I missing any single comic books if I continue to purchase all the trades?
Thanks for reading!
