Astro City to End as a Monthly Series in April; Graphic Novels on the Way

The DC solicitations will be out soon, but writer Kurt Busiek gave fans a sneak peak when it comes to Astro City, his creator-owned Vertigo series with Brent Anderson and Alex Ross. According to Busiek, April's Astro City #52 will be the final issue of Astro City as a monthly series. Over a hundred issues of Astro City have been published since its inception at Image Comics in 1995, which feels like it was decades ago. Oh wait, it was decades ago. We're all so old. In the future, it seems, Astro City will transition to an original graphic novel format, at least according to Busiek's tweet.

We'll be on the lookout for those details in the future. In the meantime, stay tuned for DC's full solicits.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
