Es­capo

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame - By Paul Pope, with Shay Plummer [Z2 Comics, $24.99]

Few comics artists have been as elec­tri­fy­ing in the past 20 years as Paul Pope, whose unique and com­pelling art style has been a sig­nif­i­cant in­flu­ence across me­dia — fash­ion, de­sign and, yes, an­i­ma­tion. The frus­tra­tion for fans has al­ways been the scarcity of some of his ma­jor works — cor­rected here by the re­lease of his long out-of-print 1999 graphic novel in color for the first time and in­clud­ing more than 50 pages of bonus ma­te­rial. The tale about an es­cape artist seek­ing to elude death it­self reads like a lost art­house mas­ter­piece, of­fer­ing a unique and un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence that shows just how good comics can be in the hands of a mod­ern mas­ter.

15ray and DVD of­fer­ings in­clude Rio 2, Wrin­kles, Black Dy­na­mite: Sea­son 1 and Dead­man Won­der­land: Com­plete Se­ries Clas­sic.
