9781595823618: The Escapists

The Escapists tells the tale of three aspiring comics creators with big dreams, small cash, and publishing rights to one forgotten Golden Age hero—The Escapist!

Inspired by Michael Chabon's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, this is Vaughan's love letter to his chosen medium, a story about what it takes to start out with nothing in Cleveland, Ohio, and end up with a comic so hot a major corporation wants to steal it from you! Brilliantly interweaving the lives of the creators with the world of their creation, artists Steve Rolston and Philip Bond bring the comic-booking trio Maxwell Roth, Case Weaver, and Denny Jones to life, while the inimitable Jason Shawn Alexander and Eduardo Barreto illustrate the thrilling trials and exciting extrications of the new—and old—Escapist!

From Publishers Weekly:

Ambition outpaces execution in Vaughan and company's graphic novel semisequel to Michael Chabon's celebrated novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. Most installments in the Escapist comics franchise to date have been perfunctory affairs; Vaughan raises the stakes by setting his story not in that character's fictional world, but in a present-day setting in which nerdy Max Roth, son of the late king of Escapist collectibles, acquires the rights in order to publish a new comic book series with the aid of a love-interest illustrator and a burly letterer. The book's plot—including an ill-fated publicity stunt and challenge from a charming corporate manipulator—is outlined with the same broad strokes as its characterizations, sometimes echoing the source text's events, but achieving none of the novel's texture. Rolston's dominant cartoony visual style fails to credibly ground the book's characters or setting, and alternates with darkly overwrought Escapist pages by Alexander. The book's moral—that inspiration is best honored by total originality—is striking and seems to call for more inspired comics than this. (Dec.)

From Booklist:

Michael Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize–winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay (2001) is the story of two Brooklyn cartoonists whose World War II–era comic books feature a Houdini-like superhero called the Escapist. Vaughan and a first-rate art team craft an inventive spin-off from Chabon about a contemporary comic-book writer’s efforts to revive Kavalier and Clay’s legacy. When his father dies, Cleveland-based elevator repairman Matt Roth spends his entire inheritance buying the Escapist’s trademark rights. Using the artistic chops of a potential girlfriend he meets on an elevator job and the lettering skills of his best friend Denny, Roth hopes to introduce the Escapist to a new generation of superhero fans. Yet when a publicity stunt featuring Denny in an Escapist costume goes haywire, the collaborators’ sudden success spirals downward toward imminent bankruptcy. Vaughan neatly slips several superbly drawn faux Escapist adventures into the proceedings, and a fanciful introduction by Chabon describes how a chance meeting with Sammy Clay launched Vaughan’s career in comics. --Carl Hays
