It's impossible to discuss 21st-century superheroes without mentioning Vaughan. Working with various artists over the past decade or so, he has written some of the finest creator-owned work in comics. His stories are deeply rooted in reality but incorporate an element of the fantastic, and they showcase human possibilities rather than superhuman clichés. This exceptional story treats the Escapist—a comic book hero invented by Michael Chabon in The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay—as a forgotten property rediscovered by three young comic lovers who decide to bring their favorite hero back to life. In this case, the heroes are the creators themselves, who use comics to transform their lives.
