Houdini: The Handcuff King by Jason Lutes

syndetics-lcCompelling black-and-white illustrations animate a single stunt from Houdini’s magic career—when he jumped from the Harvard Bridge with his hands and feet bound in handcuffs—in the graphic novel, Houdini: The Handcuff King by Jason Lutes. This book suggests that Houdini’s wife, Bess, helped him perform his escapes by passing a key or a pick to him when they kissed. I would recommend this book to graphic novel fans!
