There’s life after the Pulitzer Prize – in comic books. In December, Michael Chabon debuts an 80-page tale of the Escapist, the superhero created by the titular comics wunderkinder of Chabon’s 2000 novel ”The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay.” It gets more meta. The quarterly (written in part by Chabon and drawn by such pedigreed artists as ”Elektra”’s Bill Sienkiewicz) comes complete with a ”history,” from the Escapist’s first appearance in 1939 to the present: ”There’s a point in the ’60s where the character is in dispute,” says Chabon, ”and ends up in the hands of a company that produces hair-care products for an African-American market.”
