Summary

From the creator of Black Hole: the first volume of an epic masterpiece of graphic fiction in brilliant color.

Doug is 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 who’s nonetheless slinking out through the hole, beckoning Doug to follow.

What’s going on?

To say any more would spoil the freaky, Burnsian fun, especially because X’ed Out, unlike Black Hole, has not been previously serialized, and every unnervingly meticulous panel will be more tantalizing than the last . . .

Drawing inspiration from such diverse influences as Hergé and William Burroughs, Charles Burns has given us a dazzling spectral fever-dream—and a comic-book masterpiece.

“The art in X’ed Out is immaculate…the world he has crafted is so rich and full of life.” -Comicbuzz.com

“Surreal…Waiting for volume 2 is going to be tough.” -Vice Magazine

“Waiting for volume 2 is going to be tough.” -Vice Magazine

“Quite possibly the beginning of Burns’ finest work.” -MTV Geek

Fantasticly strange May 23, 2011

I couldn't take my eyes off the pages. It's a haunting read, that's for sure, and one you won't regret. X'ed Out is fantastically disquieting and I can't wait for the next installment. Never thought I'd do a review, but here I am, giving it a whirl, because this is worth the time! If you like "X'ed Out" you should think about getting Black Hole, it's a masterpiece! I would highly recommend this cheap textbook for all readers.
