From the mind of three-time Eisner
Award-Winner Paul Pope comes Escapo! Like a feverish mash-up of Fellini films, Heavy Metal magazine, and classic Jack Kirby comics, Escapo
tells the tale of a circus escape artist extraordinaire, who can escape from any situation — even from Death himself! However, there is one force even more powerful than the Reaper which Escapo must face. A meditation on life, love, and mortality, Escapo is not to be missed!
Originally published in

Paul Pope, a new up and coming star to the comic world, composes a great story of the ultimate escape artist, embroiled in love and cheating death. Pope's linework is stunning. The writer/artist of DC's sleeper hit 'Heavy Liquid' really brings a new light to comics with this hard to find graphic novel.
Great story and fantastic art that is full of energy and emotion. It was a little short and feels like it ends just as it gets going, but definitely worth reading.
