"..."Astro City" focuses on different groups and characters...


"...often taking the viewpoint of minor characters watching events unfold...


"...through their emotional and personal lives, in a universe of superheroes and villains.


"A backstory, goes back to the 19th century, showcasing superheroes the 'Old Soldier' and 'Ironhorse, the Human Locomotive'...


"...as well as back to pre-history including 'Coyotl' from pre-Columbian America.


"It's a thrill to be working with Freemantle Media on this," said Busiek.


"Everyone, at every turn, is supportive, helpful and completely focused on capturing the feel of 'Astro City'...bringing it to life as a TV show..."
