Meet Doug, aspiring young artist. He’s having a strange night. A weird buzzing noise on the other side of the wall has woken him up, and there across the room, next to a huge hole torn out of the bricks, sits his beloved cat Inky. Who died years ago. But that’s no longer the case, as he slinks through the hole, beckoning Doug to follow. So he does. Now there’s no turning back. What the heck is going on?
To say much more would spoil the creepy, Burnsian fun, especially since - unlike Black Hole - X’ed Out has not been previously serialised anywhere and will have readers guessing at every unnervingly meticulous panel. Drawing inspiration from such diverse influences as Herge and William Burroughs, X’ed Out is an engrossing new comic book fever-dream, from a true master of the form at the height of his powers.
- Cat. No.
