The language is clear and descriptive, with a fairly high vocabulary level. In fact, a rather funny dichotomy is created, where the story is mainly about the creation of comics, which is reputed to be a banal, dumbed-down media, but the book is written with a rather developed vocabulary. This can be more clearly seen in the Chapters where actual comic stories are quoted and developed. There the dialogue is much more to the point and direct, with simpler language used. This is used in the story of the development of the Escapist and why he fights, and also the story behind Luna Moth, the superhero whose alter-ego is Judy Dark. In many other scenes that describe Joe and Sammy's development as people, the vocabulary is at a quite high level.
