Michael Chabon's The Escapists
Inspired by the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, this story of three aspiring comics creators with big dreams, small cash, and publishing rights to one forgotten Golden Age hero-- the Escapist--is Brian K. Vaughan's love letter to his chosen medium. The lives of creators Max, Denny, and Case--latter-day versions of Joe Kavalier and Sam Clay--are brilliantly woven together with the world of their creations.
''You can feel how much love and heart [Michael Chabon] has put into this story. This is an uplifting book for all aspiring artists or writers trying to break into comics.''--Comics Bulletin
