During the Golden Age of comic books, cousins Joe Kavalier and Sammy Clay use their talents to create their own superhero the Escapist. With Sammy’s writing and Joe’s drawings, the Escapist becomes popular around the nation. However, the two face hardship in the comic industry and in their own lives. Kavalier and Clay face adventure and adversity wherever they go. Chabon shows that he doesn’t need illustrations to paint a beautiful story. This is perhaps the best story about comic books that isn’t a comic book.

When your car broke down, did you fix it yourself or did you take it to the shop? Odds are you took it to your mechanic to get it repaired. Crawford found his desk job to be mundane and quit to have a career as a motorcycle mechanic. Whatever your preconceptions about manual labor may be, it still requires much work and mastery of skills. A school classroom cannot prepare you for that. Crawford offers us to both our heads and our hands.

We all know Andre the Giant from The Princess Bride and pro wrestling, but not all of us know where he’s really from. Here Andre’s life is chronicled from boyhood all the way to Wrestlemania. We discover more about the gentle giant and that there’s some truth to tall tales about this terrific titan.

Warning: contains strong language not suitable for children, so I guess that’s why it’s it in the kids graphic novel section.
