I Hear the Working Title Was "K & C Punch Hitler (Plus There's A Golem)"

If you haven't read Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, then please, do so post-haste. It has everything you could ever want in a book: love, adventure, comic books, the immigrant story, the Golem, the Second World War, comic books, friendship, self-sacrifice, denial, and comic books. Plus, the first edition apparently focuses on what really matters in this world:

The only way Houdini could have been more badassed: if he whalloped Hitler.

No, seriously, read this book. It's outstanding. You'll love it. Even if you aren't a totally backwards comics nerd like Flex.

I'm not really sure who drew this cover, but if anyone could contact me with the information, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to Ben Handfelt for the heads up on this pic. In addition to his own blog, Ben contributes regularly to Thunder Matt's Saloon, a site I also contribute to on a quasi-regular basis - although my posts tend to center less around celebrating Hitler's glass jaw, and more around Iron Maiden.
