THE ESCAPISTS

THE ESCAPISTS IS BOTH A SEQUEL AND A REALLY GOOD INTRODUCTION TO MICHAEL CHABON'S NOVEL THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF KAVALIER AND CLAY. THE COMIC TAKES PLACE IN THE MODERN DAY AND KAVALIER AND CLAY'S GOLDEN AGE SUPERHERO, THE ESCAPIST, HAS BEEN MOSTLY FORGOTTEN. A GROUP OF 20-SOMETHING FRIENDS OBTAIN THE RIGHTS AND WORK TO BRING THE ESCAPIST INTO THE MODERN AGE OF COMICS.

I'M TOTALLY BIASED BECAUSE KAVALIER AND CLAY IS MY FAVORITE NOVEL, AND I THINK BKV IS THE BEST AMERICAN COMICS WRITER OF THE PAST 20 YEARS, BUT THE BOOK ITSELF IS JUST A REALLY GREAT HUMAN STORY ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE CHARACTERS AND WITH THEIR ART, WITH A LOT OF AWESOMESAUCE META ABOUT THE GOLDEN AGE OF COMICS.

DOCTOR STRANGE: THE OATH (FIVE-ISSUE MINISERIES, IS THE ONLY THING I'VE READ WITH DR. STRANGE AS THE MAIN CHARACTER, AND IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. IT ALSO HAS WONG (HIS EVER-FAITHFUL ASS-KICKING MANSERVANT) AND NIGHT NURSE (A RELATIVELY NEW ADDITION TO THE MARVEL CANON, SHE RUNS A SERIES OF UNDERGROUND CLINICS/SURGERIES IN NEW YORK FOR SUPERHEROES, SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO REVEAL THEIR IDENTITIES). IT'S QUITE OLD-FASHIONED IN IT'S STYLE AND SET-UP, BUT IT COVERS A PRETTY SERIOUS ISSUE ("THE OATH" IS THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH STRANGE TOOK AS A DOCTOR, NOT A SPELL OR ANYTHING. SORT OF). STRANGE ALSO GETS SOME ROMANCE WITH NIGHT NURSE!

ON A SIDENOTE, IF ANYONE CAN REC ANY OTHER DR. STRANGE STUFF I'D BE VERY HAPPY.
