Description

What goes up must come down. It's a natural law that the New Economy just learned all over again. Recent times have been fantastically dramatic in the cloistered world of American business: Narratives full of larger-than-life characters, outsized egos, astonishing hubris, and lots and lots of money. It's action-packed. It makes good comics. That's the idea behind Titans of Finance, a new and groundbreaking merger of reality - straight from the business pages - and comix. You've never seen anything like it: True tales from the world of big money, wittily translated through America's most populist medium. Meet Ron Perelman, the man who made millions while presiding over the Mighty Marvel Comics train wreck. Thrill to the antics of "Chainsaw" Al Dunlap, Mike "The V-Man" Vranos, and "Jaybird" Goldinger - and many more of Wall Street's most well-known Icaruses. These aren't just instructive episodes about the current climate. They're timeless tales, like the Bible or Cats. Never mind Spawn and Spider-man. These are our superheroes now.These tales "hit the mark," says Harvey Pekar, and are "a brilliant use of the medium," according to TheStreet.com's James J. Cramer. Best of all, it's all true! Titans of Finance is entirely based on press accounts. The results are mind-blowing. Over the past five years, in fact, Titans has crushed the benchmark S&P 500. You've never seen anything like it - this is one acquisition you won't regret. Titans of Finance features the crisp art of Josh Neufeld (A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge), and the incisive scripts of the mysterious R. Walker.

Customer Reviews

Hilarious

This is a rather funny roundup of financial misdeeds...in comic book form. All stories of corporate greed are beautifully illustrated, in color. Certainly relevant to today's financial mess. Warning: the full color comix are very hard to read on the iPhone/iTouch. It only works on the iPad.
