Overview

Starring the adventures of Astro City's most popular heroes, collecting ASTRO CITY: SAMARITAN #1, ASTRO CITY: ASTRA #1-2, ASTRO CITY: SILVER AGENT #1-2 and ASTRO CITY: BEAUTIE #1. Astra Furst, a third-generation super hero of Astro City, is graduating from college. It's a time of friends and family, new opportunities, changing relationships – and danger! Featuring the First Family, the creatures of Monstro City, a new hero team and more on a graduation night nobody's ever going to forget!

Also in this volume: at last, the full story of the Silver Agent's fateful journey through time is revealed – including his origin, his greatest battles and his ultimate fate. Plus, Samaritan has his annual dinner with the Infidel, and Beautie, the life-size super-powered fashion-doll member of Honor Guard, doesn't know who she is. Now, she's determined to get answers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Kurt Busiek's brilliant series Astro City tries to answer that question by focusing on the ordinary people whose lives are affected by epic battles fought in the skies. Busiek's stories, vibrantly illustrated by Brent Anderson, focus on such unlikely subjects as a bellman at an Astro City hotel, or a superhero's ex-girlfriend, or a young reporter who stumbles on a superheroic scoop."—SLATE
