Synopsis

The Cape by Jason Ciaramella

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, will linger with you long after you turn the last page, and force you to ask yourself the question: What if? For readers who enjoyed: Locke & Key Vol. 4: Keys to the Kingdom (9781600108860), Locke & Key Vol. 3: Crown of Shadows (9781600106958), Locke & Key Vol. 2: Head Games (9781600104831), Locke & Key Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft (9781600102370), Heart-Shaped Box (9780061147937), Horns (9780061147951), and 20th Century Ghosts (9780061147982).
