Charles Burns, award winning graphic novelist and creator of Black Hole, will be coming to Bookshop to celebrate his new title, X’ed Out, 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.
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 Herge and William Burroughs, Charles Burns has given us a dazzling spectral fever dream--and a comic-book masterpiece.
