As if Kurt Busiek isn’t busy enough, with Astro City going weekly, the acclaimed writer has been talking about his upcoming project, American Gothic, a new supernatural series from WildStorm. Set in (spoilers on, big surprise looming!) America, Busiek describes the book as a “wide-ranging series about magic and myth … dealing with American mythology as a setting, a context for a wide variety of stories.”
The Astro City writer added: “It’s a shadowy ramble into the parts of America that no one gets to see, full of unseen magic all around us, in settings that range from suburbia to the borderlands of reality. A mosaic of stories that link into a very big picture.”
We can expect the series “sometime next year” according to Busiek.
