Extortion and the business of racketeering isn’t for those who lack the intestinal fortitude to stand their ground and make sometimes unreasonable or unseemly demands of other people. It definitely isn’t for those who lack the temerity to stand face to face with a massive otherworldly being with potentially world-threatening powers. Fortunately for us, Thatcher Jerome doesn’t have any such qualms, and he’s intent on showing the Ambassador just how things work in Astro City, particularly if you infringe on the longshoremen’s union’s territory. Don’t take my word for it; take a peek at this exclusive preview of Vertigo’s Astro City #6 by Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson (and, of course, an Alex Ross cover).
