Writer Kurt Busiek may have slowed down a few steps since the serious
chronic respiratory problems that have spelled the end – for now – to his
acclaimed “Astro City” series, but it hasn’t been by much. In addition to
monthly assignments for both DC and Marvel Comics, the writer teased Friday
that he’s got another big project up his sleeve for next year. As to what,
exactly, it is, fans will just have to wait, however.
All Busiek would say Friday in response to inquiries from CBR News about
rumors of a new project that have been swirling for several months was
“‘Arrowsmith.’ Busiek. Pacheco. Cliffhanger. 2003.”
The image he provided suggests at least one strong possibility, but
since Busiek has famously tossed a major curveball across the plate in
recent memory – the last page of “Thunderbolts” #1 remains a strong
argument for creative teams not giving everything away before their book
hits the shelves – such speculation is best left for Busiek’s fans.
