New Releases: Astro City #6

Today you'll find Astro City #6 on the shelves of your Local Comic Shop. It has no ties to Booster Gold. It doesn't even take place in the DCnU. It isn't even published as a DC imprint: it's a Vertigo book! In spite of this — or maybe because of it — this title gets my vote as the best super hero comic on the market today.

In fairness, I've been a big Astro City fan for years. I consider Kurt Busiek's poor health (the reason the title is published so sporadically) to be the biggest tragedy in comics in recent years after Booster's extended absence from the DCnU, of course. Astro City consistently manages to capture the awe and hope of super hero comics that is missing in the DC and Marvel Universes, what with their constant civil wars and forever evilness. It's just fun to read comics where the good guys not only win, but also manage to avoid billions of dollars in property damage and hundreds of thousands of collateral casualties.

If you're still interested in reading comics but don't care for a DC Universe without Booster Gold, consider giving Astro City a read. I think you'll be glad you did.
