Astro City: The Dark Age 1

Today, Astro City is a shining metropolis on a hill where super-heroes patrol the skies. However, things were not always as bright as they are today. In the early 1970's, in the wake of a global catastrophe, two brothers, one good and one evil must deal with family secrets and social upheaval, involving heroes from Jack-In-the-Box to the Blue Knight and the unsettling events leading to the final fate of the mysterious Silver Agent. Find out why this era was so troubled through the eyes of two men who survived the depths of it!

Kurt Busiek (born September 16, 1960) is a comic book writer. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and grew up in various towns in the Boston area, including Lexington, where he befriended another future comic book writer, Scott McCloud.

Career

Busiek has worked on a number of different titles in his career, starting in 1982 with a Green Lantern #162 backup story. These include "Arrowsmith", "The Avengers", "Icon", "Iron Man", "The Liberty Project", "Ninjak", "The Power Company", "Red Tornado", "Shockrockets", "", "Thunderbolts", "Untold Tales of Spider-Man", "JLA", and (perhaps most notably) the "Marvels" mini-series followed by Homage Comics "Kurt Busiek's Astro City". As a fan, he originated the theory that the Phoenix was a separate being who had impersonated Jean Grey and therefore Jean had not died, which the editorial team later used into the comics.

In 1997, Busiek began a celebrated stint as writer of "Avengers" alongside artist George Pérez. Perez departed from the series in 2000, but Busiek continued as writer for two more years, collaborating with artists Alan Davis, Kieron Dwyer and others. Busiek's tenure culminated with the Kang Dynasty storyline. In 2003, Busiek re-teamed with Perez to create the JLA/Avengers limited series.

In 2003, Busiek began a new "Conan" series for Dark Horse Comics but has since moved on. In December 2005 Busiek signed a two-year exclusive contract with DC Comics. During DC's "Infinite Crisis" event, he teamed with Geoff Johns on a One Year Later 8-part story arc (called "Up, Up and Away") that encompassed both Superman titles. As well, he began writing the DC title "Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis" and wrote from issues 40-49. Busiek was the writer of "Superman", and was replaced by James Robinson starting from Superman#677. Busiek is currently writing a new weekly series at DC called "Trinity", starring Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. The weekly features a 12 page main story by Busiek, with art by Mark Bagley, and a 10 page backup story co-written by Busiek and Fabian Nicieza, with art from various artists, including Tom Derenick, Mike Norton and Scott McDaniel.

Work on some of Kurt's more challenging, less mainstream projects, most notably "Astro City", has been repeatedly delayed by health problems brought about by mercury poisoning. [ [http://www.mycomicshop.com/subscriptionservice/communications?AID=50] ] [cite newsgroup
