Kings in Disguise : A Novel, Paperback / softback Book

Kings in Disguise : A Novel Paperback / softback

Description

This award-winning tale, set in the height of the Great Depression, received rave reviews long before graphic novels became the phenomenon they are today.

Hailed as one of the top 100 comics of all time by The Comics Journal, Kings in Disguise now reemerges as a classic.

It is January 1932, and movie-loving Freddie Bloch is trading his father's liquor bottles for the cost a matinee: "Dreams were only a dime, but empty bottles [only] brought a penny apiece." When his father disappears and his brother gets arrested, Freddie finds himself homeless and adrift, trying to survive during the Detroit labor riots and amid the furor of violent, anti-communist mobs.

Winner of the Eisner Award and the Harvey Award for Best New Series and an additional Eisner Award for Best Single Issue.
