    CRITIQUE ON INFINITE EARTHS: ASTRO CITY A VISITORS GUIDE

    (excerpt)

    It was fun seeing the world of Astro City from so many different artistic perspectives. It's basically been Alex Ross and Brent Anderson from the start, so these other interpretations were a nice change of pace. I was surprised at the lack of involvement Ross had in this book. In the original series, Ross's design sketches were often included in each issue, and I miss those behind-the-scenes elements.

    DC is asking far too high a price for a non-prestige format book that's low on actual story content. This could have served as a great marketing tool to get new readers to check out the property, but at this price, only Astro City completists will bother picking it up. 6/10

    I picked up ASTRO CITY: A VISITOR'S GUIDE, and while the book is a must-have for Astro City fans, there is no contribution from George within its pages.

    SOJOURN / LADY DEATH #1 (Errata) (Jul 2004) SOJOURN / LADY DEATH #2 (Errata) (Aug 2004)

    Just some tidbits from George at the recent Canadian Comic Expo:

    - Mike Perkins will be inking him on Titans: Games, since George was so impressed with the results of their previous collaborations. The pages already inked by Al Vey will see print as they are.

    - George said that when the convention was over, he would draw his contribution for Astro City: A Visitor's Guide. (The book is scheduled for release on October 13th.)

    - He drew 2 covers and 5 interior pages for the cancelled Sojourn/Lady Death.

    One thing I forgot to ask him was whether his work would appear in Even More Fund Comics. He was originally announced as a contributor, and the book was apparently made available at the Baltimore Comic-Con this past September 11-12, so I'm curious to look at it when it hits comic store shelves.

    For years, Astro City has been a favorite destination for readers. This fall, DC Comics/ WildStorm Productions will acquaint new readers (and reacquaint longtime fans) with Kurt Busiek's rich world with Astro City: A Visitor's Guide (AUG040440, $5.95). Written by Busiek, the 48-page guide will showcase the neighborhoods, businesses, sights, and colorful heroes of Astro City with stunning illustrations by Brent Anderson & Ben Oliver, George Pérez, Carlos Pacheco, Dave Gibbons, Michael Golden, Jason Pearson, and others.

Featuring a cover by Alex Ross, the book is set to ship on October 13.

    George and I have talked about doing another project -- a pretty big one too -- after he finishes GAMES, but that'll be a ways off.
