Pretty cool collection. Really likes the variety of the style of stories. Some were much better than others though.
Greg
These comics were really well done in paying homage to one of the best books I've ever read. Some of these entries were particularly powerful and I like how they evoke the different eras of comics. Having recently learned about Jack Cole it was interesting to see him referenced a few times as well.
Kevinochau
The "actual" escapist comic from Chabon's Kavalier and Clay. Fantastic graphic novel that ties into all these things described in the book itself.
Abigail
A fun idea, but one or two volumes were enough for me.
Greg
These are such fun. Why don't I own #4?
