angelophile: (Jack Nicholson lobotomy)
[personal profile] angelophile posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Seeing this post a couple of weeks ago reminded me to dig out my recently purchased copy of The Escapists by Brian K. Vaughan.

Dark Horse have produced a number of comics based around the Golden Age superhero invented in Michael Chabon's novel "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay". In 2006, writer BKV wrote a spiritual sequel to the original novel, which follows Jewish writer Max Roth, who inherits his love of The Escapist from his late father and buys the rights to revive the character.

It's a fantastic, character driven read with art by Philip Bond (Kill Your Boyfriend), Steve Rolston, Jason Shawn Alexander and Eduardo Barreto and a fun little introduction by Chabon that picks up with Sammy Clay several decades after the novel.

Some time later, Max's mother also dies.
