Wizard Top Ten and multiple Eisner Award-winning writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Runaways) teams with critically acclaimed artists Philip Bond (Vimanarama, Vertigo Pop, Tank Girl) and Eduardo Barreto (Batman, The Long Haul) to deliver this knockout first issue from Pulitzer-winning author Michael Chabon!

Discovering his late father’s decades-spanning vault of Escapist memorabilia at the age of six, Max became a fan of the Master of Elusion almost overnight.  After exhausting the extensive stash of Golden and Silver Age comics, he needed more—and started writing his own Escapist stories.  Now nineteen, he’s determined to make the character a sensation once again, but where is he going to find an artist—in Cleveland? Meet Maxwell Roth and Case Weaver, latter-day versions of Joe Kavalier and Sam Clay, in part one of The Escapists!

With cover art by multi-platinum superstar Frank Miller kicking off a round robin of stellar cover artists including James Jean and John Cassaday, this launch of the first Escapist miniseries can’t be missed!

 “[Vaughan] turned in a script that caused grown men, or at least one grown man, to weep for joy. It is a script that well meets, and perhaps even exceeds, the expectations raised by the shadow of the parent novel . . .” 
—Michael Chabon

The Escapists I features story by Brian K. Vaughan and art by Philip Bond, Eduardo Barreto, and Frank Miller.  It arrives on sale July 12 with a retail price of $1.00.
