Can the struggling artists escape their fate?
on 5 May 2017
A big book starting in pre WW2 Europe telling in fictionalised form of the USA golden age of superhero comics but giving ample coverage to the history of escapology. The heroes are cousins, one an American writer the other an immigrant with brilliance in graphic art and to a lesser degree performance magic. Struggle, triumph and tragedy each take their turn. A fascinating read.
