He's the kind of superhero you need to kill right away. If you tie him up and he gets away, it's your own fault.

Michael Chabon (not pronounced KA-BONE) has penned a comic based upon a superhero he created in The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay: The Escapist. The New York Times has an article about mild-mannered literary guys transformed into comics writers.

In practically no time at all, the first volume of The Escapist is all set to be pre-ordered at Amazon. I can't believe there are already enough issues out to make a trade paperback.
