Review revue: The San Francisco Chronicle briefly reviews Michael Chabon Presents: The Amazing Adventures of The Escapist Vol. One:

"You don't have to have read Kavalier and Clay to enjoy these snappy little vignettes of costumed superheroics, but readers with a sense of the history of American comics will appreciate the sly jokes and loving inside references. Told in a variety of styles -- from Japanese manga to grim 'n' gritty '70s urban drama -- these short tales capture the pulpy fun of a bygone era. The contributors' enthusiasm for the material is evident on every page."
