From the creator of "Black Hole" comes the first volume of an epic masterpiece of graphic fiction. Doug wakes up to find a huge hole torn out of his bedroom wall and his beloved--and dead--cat Inky slinking in and out through the hole, beckoning for him to follow.
From the Publisher:
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.
Annotation:
X'ED OUT was selected by Publishers Weekly as a 2010 Top 100 Book.

Praise

"Fusing the unsettling kitsch of EC horror comics, the storytelling sensibility of Euro-classics like Tintin, and the astute observations about young adults that made Black Hole so engrossing, Burns has turned out a haunting first chapter in what promises to be a spellbinder." (starred review) 07/05/2010

"Charles Burns's comics are fluid, smooth and as solidly built as a vintage TV set, but they shudder with the chill of the uncanny. His slim graphic novel X'ED OUT filters William S. Burroughs's body-loathing and disjunction through the iconography of Herge's TINTIN comics." - Douglas Wolk 10/31/2010
