The blue-suited Escapist is back in the limelight!

Howard Chaykin (American Flagg) and David Hahn (Bite Club, Private Beach) team up for "Siren Song," wherein a mesmerizing saxophone player forces her listeners to commit dastardly deeds! Writer Kevin McCarthy and artist Shawn Martinbrough (Detective) present "The Death of the Escapist," with our favorite hero caught by a totalitarian despot. The dictator will crush his citizens' aspirations for freedom-starting with the Escapist! Jason Hall, of Creeper and Pistolwhip fame, writes the polemic "The Final Curtain"- featuring the return of artist Eric Wight, winner of the 2004 Russ Manning Award! Also in this issue, the Master of Elusion takes on the Physician of Illusion-Doc Hypnosis!-in a story written and drawn by Paul Grist (Kane, Jack Staff), and veteran comics scribe Roy Thomas returns with more Escapist lore of the 1960s. Last but not least, a very special story written and drawn by alternative comics wunderkind, Jeffrey Brown (Clumsy, Unlikely)!
