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.

Here's a few pages from the first issue to whet your appetites. )

Hello I was going to post the very excellent future comic Spider-man 2099 but because it's written by a certain author who I still love despite the fallout of the last community, I decided to post this Grant Morrison classic Kill your Boyfriend.
