BEHIND THE MASKS. In Astro City, ordinary people walk side by side with heroes, villains, monsters and more. Acclaimed creators Kurt Busiek, Brent Anderson and Alex Ross invite you to step behind the headlines, beyond the adventures, and experience a world of heroes in a whole new way: up close and personal. Take a walk into the private lives that create public wonders, and see it all for yourself. A sorcerer's personal assistant. A costumed criminal struggling with normal life. A godly visitation to the mortal world. A roadside museum of killer robots. And a teenaged mad scientist's fateful birthday party. Private moments... Collects ASTRO CITY #11-16.
