    It'll take 6 volumes to collect everything up to the Vertigo issue 52.

    Hopefully, there'll be more volumes after that, once we've produced enough new material to fill them up.

    Dear Mr Busiek

    Will there be any plans to collect the Metrobooks into Deluxe oversized HC's? Thanks.

    We're planning to do oversized shmancy hardcovers, but not of the MetroBooks.

    the first Metrobook collection of Astro city is out, as is the Astro City Special. The first 2 or 3 issues of Arrowsmith are out as well.

    So, I got my copy of the Metrobook the other day. I figured I would read one issue a night before I go to sleep. I forgot how much I LOVED this series. I know it’s over twenty five years late, but kudos to the entire creative team!

    Arrowsmith is just so damn good. Some of the best world building I have seen in a long time. And outstanding art and story to boot.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Picked up a copy. Read the whole thing in a day. Felt so wonderfully lived in, like the characters had existed for years and this was just a revamp kind of project that worked out really well.

    That is what make Astro City so special to comic book fans. We know the tropes and Kurt gives us just enough to fill in the blanks while writing compelling characters and stories.
    The latest issue is an example. spoilers:
    We know the teen group didn't die, we know there is some interdimensional voodoo going on. So he doesn't keep the mystery from us, but gives us enough while making it about the characters.
    end of spoilers

    I just re-read “Everyday Life” from the Astro City Metrobook. I am excited to reread the whole series and catch up on the new books. I think Astro City belongs on the shelf next to Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing or Neil Gaimans Sandman. Since it’s still ongoing, maybe it’s more like Love and Rockets or Stray Bullets. Anyhow, a must read series.
