A sci-fi thriller about a next-gen form of psychiatry: ‘subliminal hitmen’ injected into your mind who hunt down the demons that haunt you.
Ex-military sharpshooter Colin McClure is Mezign Corp’s most recent recruit for the still-experimental (and often deadly) job of subliminal hitman. McClure is the perfect candidate for two reasons: a- he’s a killing machine, and b- he lost his legs in the war, so subliminal-ops are his only way to see any action. But he’s also a dangerous candidate for one reason unknown to Mezign: Colin’s true motive is to enter the mind of his catatonic daughter and bring her out of a coma.
Collects issues 1-5.
"If you like smart, high-octane sci-fi, you'll love X'ed. Patrick and Hayrula create a thrilling world, where hitmen injected into your mind hunt down your inner demons - A book with as many twists and turns as there are in the labyrinth of the human brain. A huge achievement!"
- Scott Snyder (Batman, Wytches)
"Inception with a twist is a great way to describe X’ed... we’re kept on our toes and there’s some nice twists."
-Brett Schenker, Graphic Policy
"A never-ending ocean of pure, unadulterated fun."
-Nikki Sherman, Comicosity
"The plethora of new characters, concepts and scenarios is ultimately no more confusing than a journey through Lewis Carroll's Wonderland, one where the abstract images of dreams are accepted just because they are present. Patrick has maintained the tension and wonder of the first issue... coupled with the sense that we have only scraped the surface of the mystery he's unfolding."
-Richard Gray, Newsarama
"A crazy sci-fi adventure. It's a cross between classic Michael Crichton and today's James Cameron... X'ed has the action you're looking for along with the story and artwork to back it up."
