I am very happy for the return of this series. Is it too soon to ask for a 2nd Astro City book?
But none of the stuff that Alan Moore is so unhappy about in his WATCHMEN contract is in the ASTRO CITY contract.
Very excited for this, even though I've never read Astro City before.
Any pre-reading recommendations? I just ordered the recent reprinting of the original mini, but other than that...?
^It's all great. If you like the first collection, I'm sure you'll like the others.
But publication order of trades is
Life in the Big City
Family Album (the first three stories actually were printed before Confession)
Dark Age Book 1
Dark Age Book 2
You can pretty much start with any and out of any order and be fine. The first three though feature some of the best stories.

I was buying astro city when it first came out and I've always loved it. I've went back and reread the entire series after the announcement. I'm thrilled its coming back.
Funny, Astro City does NOT strike me as a "Mature Readers" title.
Show me a bitter nazi and I'll show you a sour kraut.

This is the best comic news I have heard in a while. If I could only read 1 comic it would be Astro City! I love everything about it. Thank you for bringing it back. I cannot wait!

"ASTRO CITY will be ASTRO CITY, just as it was at Image, Homage, Wildstorm Signature, Wildstorm, DC and Wizard." Oooh--
I get it now: you're trying to beat Usagi Yojimbo and Groo in the number of publishers to fly your banner! ah-HAH!
Well, I don't care who's your publisher--I'm just jubilant to have AC back in the bomic book field; I've been a reader since the very first #1, and expect to continue with ya until yer through. Welcome back!

I don't care who it's under as long as they don't deface that precious cover art.
I must have some booze. I demand to have some booze.

I'm so much looking forward to this! Notice to DCU and Marvel U creators -- you're about to be schooled once again in how a superhero comic should be done!
