Chabon has strong ties to the world of comic books, with his 2000 novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (which he won the Pulitzer for) telling the story of two fictional Golden Age comic creators. Chabon subsequently contribued to Dark Horse's comics featuring The Escapist, the superhero created by Kavalier and Clay in the novel. Despite the announcement coming on April 1, Fraction has made it clear to several fans on Twitter and Tumblr that this is not an April Fools' prank.
