About this title

Synopsis:

This volume of The Escapist collects issues five and six of the popular, Eisner Award winning quarterly series and features the late Will Eisner's return to the Spirit, in a crossover tale with the Escapist! Fans of classic comics will not want to miss what became Eisner's last comics work, completed just two weeks before the death of the legendary comics godfather. Also in this volume is the comics writing debut of award-winning author and Guggenheim fellow Chris Offutt, illustrated by Thomas Yeates. Dan Best and Eddie Campbell contribute a fully painted story from the 1939 World's Fair in Empire City, and 2004 Russ Manning Award winner Eric Wight brings a polemic story from writer Jason Hall to life. Among the other notable contributors are Howard Chaykin, Paul Grist, Shawn Martinbrough, David Hahn, Roy Thomas, Matt Wagner and indie stalwarts Jeffrey Brown and Jason!

From Booklist:

The latest collection of the comic-book series chronicling the exploits of the superhero created by the young protagonists of Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (2000) includes comics legend Will Eisner's last story. While definitely a minor effort, it fittingly features Eisner's famed creation the Spirit, seldom seen during Eisner's latter years (the Escapist rescues him from archfoe P'Gell). The rest of the stories, which purport to be from various eras of the Escapist's long publishing history but are actually the work of some of today's top comics writers and artists, are the usual mixed bag. Howard Chaykin indulges his affinity for the 1940s with a tale set in occupied Paris, and a contemporary story by Kevin McCarthy and Shawn Martinbrough finds the Escapist battling to free minds in a North Korea-like dictatorship. Most interesting--and illustrative of the admirable anything-goes nature of the series--is alternative cartoonist Jeffrey Brown's depiction of the superhero as a naive romantic drawn in the primitive, awkward style of Brown's disarming autobiographical comics.
