Napoleon's blog: "book stuff"

created on 10/29/2008  |  http://fubar.com/book-stuff/b255532

So Michael Chabon wrote an exceptional novel called 'The Amazing Adventures Of Kavalier And Clay', which traced the history of two Jewish immigrants in the US who acheived fame and fortune when the create a popular superhero, The Escapist (no points for spotting the real life influence).  Riffing on this, and in turn writing his own loveletter to the medium, Brian K Vaughan, working with artist Steve Rolston, took that character and spun it out into a brilliant six part mini-series about the creative team that years after Kavalier and Clay come into posession of the rights to The Escapist and fight to bring the book back to the stands.

The soft-cover collection has just hit the shops.  If you love comics, treat yourself.
