They say no one ever dies in Stillwater and that no one gets to leave...but even for the ones who have freed themselves of the town, is there truly any escaping Stillwater?
This 40-page supersized special tackles so many of the biggest questions you’ve asked that Chip Zdarsky and Ramón Pérez assembled a dream team of acclaimed creators to bring you the answers before the final chapter of Stillwater begins. Ethan Young, Jason Loo, Andrew Wheeler and Soo Lee all collaborate on The Escape.
“Working on Stillwater has been a dream come true,” said Zdarsky. “But with an entire town of possible stories, it felt selfish keeping them all to ourselves, so Ramón and I are super excited to have these extremely talented creators exploring some of the eternal citizens of Stillwater!”
"Truly there is no bigger compliment than to have creators play in the sandbox you’ve helped realize,” added Perez. “I’m altogether flattered and excited to share what this wonderful array of talented creators has added to the mythos of Stillwater.”
