Titans of Finance

Overview

What goes up must come down. It's a natural law that the New Economy just learned all over again. Recent times have been fantastically dramatic in the cloistered world of American business: Narratives full of larger-than-life characters, outsized egos, astonishing hubris, and lots and lots of money. It's action-packed. It makes good comics.

That's the idea behind Titans of Finance, a new and groundbreaking merger of reality - straight from the business pages - and comix. You've ...

Overview

What goes up must come down. It's a natural law that the New Economy just learned all over again. Recent times have been fantastically dramatic in the cloistered world of American business: Narratives full of larger-than-life characters, outsized egos, astonishing hubris, and lots and lots of money. It's action-packed. It makes good comics.

That's the idea behind Titans of Finance, a new and groundbreaking merger of reality - straight from the business pages - and comix. You've never seen anything like it: True tales from the world of big money, wittily translated through America's most populist medium.

Meet Ron Perelman, the man who made millions while presiding over the Mighty Marvel Comics train wreck. Thrill to the antics of "Chainsaw" Al Dunlap, Mike "The V-Man" Vranos, and "Jaybird" Goldinger - and many more of Wall Street's most well-known Icaruses. These aren't just instructive episodes about the current climate. They're timeless tales, like the Bible or Cats. Never mind Spawn and Spider-man. These are our superheroes now.

These tales "hit the mark," says Harvey Pekar, and are "a brilliant use of the medium," according to TheStreet.com's James J. Cramer. Best of all, it's all true! Titans of Finance is entirely based on press accounts. The results are mind-blowing. Over the past five years, in fact, Titans has crushed the benchmark S&P 500. You've never seen anything like it - this is one acquisition you won't regret.

Editorial Reviews

Ken Kurson
when it sets its satirical sights on people like investment guru Jay Goldinger — an outspoken advocate of conservative investing who is accused of running a highly leveraged `fraudulent trade misallocation scheme` — the black-and-white morality of comics makes the ideal canvas&.
Patrick McGeehan
A financial writer and a cartoonist have joined to create a comic book, called `Titans of Finance,` with corporate executives and Wall Street traders cast as heroes and villains Not surprisingly, the leading man is Ronald O Perelman, the financier who presided over the rise and decline of the Marvel comic company.
Scott Gilbert
A fine antidote to the free-enterprise hype ladled out by `capitalist tool` media outlets like Forbes and Money, in their stories of heroic, brilliant, and faultless monetary self-achievers The hilarious progression of the stories breaks up the pretensions and self-aggrandizement characteristic of so many `self-made` entrepreneurs, showing how their own all-too-self-denied foibles and obsessions eventually bring their grand schemes to ridiculous ends.
ICv2
Titans of Finance is a muckraking expose that lays bare the antics and excesses of some of the most hated captains of industry in contemporary America including downsizing expert `Chainsaw` Al Dunlap and `conservative` investment guru Jay Goldinger.
R. Seth Friedman
A basic guide that answers all the questions beginners will have about starting up their own zine project The Q&A format is non-intimidating but still offers the information you`re looking for It`s good to see a book on zines produced like a zine, ie, completely self-published.
Steven Svymbersky
A guide to zine publishing that`s authoritative, without reading like a textbook Bill`s got more than enough experience to back up his advice, and it is written in a personal manner that lets you know you are dealing with someone you can trust Hopefully everyone who thinks tey have the talent to publish a great zine will read this book first I know I will be recommending it to the aspiring zine creators who seek my advice.
