The Escapists are back, and so is the classic villain, The Saboteur!

Wizard Top Ten writer and multiple Eisner Award-winner Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man; Ex Machina; Runaways) digs into Escapist lore to bring out the ultimate betrayal—Luna Moth, as an agent of the Iron Chain! Is her mind under the Saboteur’s control, or is she his willing accomplice? The Escapist is caught in a “good old-fashioned death trap,” but his longtime enemy has confiscated the Golden Key—the source of his powers—and has drugged him out of his mind!  Now what?! Jason Shawn Alexander (Damn Nation, The Secret) moodily illustrates what may be the Escapist’s last adventure.

Back in the real world, artist Steve Rolston (Queen & Country, One Bad Day) joins up with Denny, who is ready to fake a confession for the high-profile publicity stunt that landed him downtown. Add in Case’s daring, hang-gliding confrontation in a darkened building, and it leads to the moment all you hopeless romantics have been waiting for!

• Inspired by The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Pulitzer-winning author Michael Chabon.
