Every little boy dreams about putting on a cape and soaring up, up, and away... but what if one day that dream were to come true?
Eric was like every other eight-year-old boy, until a tragic accident changed his life forever. The Cape explores the dark side of power, as the adult Eric–a confused and broken man–takes to the skies... and sets out to exact a terrible vengeance on everyone who ever disappointed him.
This critically acclaimed, Eisner Award-nominated story, written by Jason Ciaramella, based on the short story by New York Times bestselling author Joe Hill, with art by Zach Howard and Nelson Daniel, smashes the classic superhero myth, and wraps the bloody wreckage in a bright blue shroud: THE CAPE.
Contains both The Cape and The Cape: 1969 in an oversized hardcover edition.
