Mister X: Condemned

119 pages
Ages 14+

A milestone in graphic design and alternative comics, Mister X was ahead of its time when it debuted in the 1980s. Now legendary creator Dean Motter (Electropolis, Terminal City) brings the same innovation and panache to the twenty-first century in this acclaimed reimagining of his classic series, Mister X: Condemned.

Designed using the principles of psychetecture to soothe its inhabitants, the buildings of Radiant City instead cause anxiety, insomnia, and madness. As ordinary citizens begin giving in to dementia and a serial killer walks the streets, a desperate City Hall commissions a drastic program of urban demolition, resulting in the deaths of a reclusive sect of architects. Returning from exile with a mission to recover Radiant City’s original blueprints, only one man has a chance of saving the city—the enigmatic Mister X.
