Writer Kurt Busiek may have slowed down a few steps since the seriouschronic respiratory problems that have spelled the end - for now - to hisacclaimed "Astro City" series, but it hasn't been by much. In addition tomonthly assignments for both DC and Marvel Comics, the writer teased Fridaythat 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 aboutrumors 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, butsince Busiek has famously tossed a major curveball across the plate inrecent memory - the last page of "Thunderbolts" #1 remains a strongargument for creative teams not giving everything away before their bookhits the shelves - such speculation is best left for Busiek's fans.
