X’ed Out

Charles Burns

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.

    This is AMAZING! The first extended piece of Burns’ comic work that I’ve seen in full color and he is doing things with color that I’ve never seen in comics before.
    If you are a fan of Charles Burns this is one of his best yet! X’ed Out is the first in a planned trilogy and at this rate, may become my new favorite piece of his once it’s completed.

    Burns creates a fascinating and in-depth world, immersing the reader in it without explanation. It was difficult to tell what was happening or what would happen next because it starts out weird, with the main character following his long dead cat through a hole in the wall, and keeps twisting and unraveling and becoming stranger and stranger until nothing is recognizable. It’s easy to get lost in!
