Synopsis:
Beginning the longest, most ambitious ASTRO CITY epic ever! In the wake of a global catastrophe during the early '70s, two brothers deal with family secrets and social upheaval, involving heroes from Jack-In- the-Box to the Blue Knight, newcomers like Apollo Eleven, and the unsettling events leading to the final fate of the Silver Agent. THE DARK AGE consists of four 4-issue arcs stretching across Astro City's darkest era. Find out why the '70s were so troubled through the eyes of two men who survived the depths of it!
