The Origin of the Escapist

Set during Golden Age of comic books, Michael Chabon's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay tells the story of Joe Kavalier and Sam Clay, cousins who create a superhero known as "The Escapist." Now, at long last, that dazzling Master of Elusion, foe of tyranny, and champion of liberation slips free from the bonds of the novel into the full-color world of comics.
