Summary
"In this long-awaited sequel to the legendary graphic novel Kings in Disguise, a young circus hand gets involved in dangerous underground activity. This highly anticipated sequel tells the story of a young man's coming of age in a world where the capacity to dream may be a fatal flaw. Set in 1937, On the Ropes continues the story of Fred Bloch, now apprenticed to escape artist Gordon Corey, a star attraction in a traveling WPA circus. Though damaged by the Depression and haunted by past mistakes, each man holds the key to the other's salvation-- but each also harbors a secret that could lead to their mutual destruction. Enacted against a backdrop of violent labor unrest and a nation's faltering recovery, On the Ropes is a breathtaking visual achievement that delivers a powerful, timeless story" -- from publisher's web site
