When Mister X hit the shelves twenty-five years ago, no one had ever seen anything like it — a fusion of film noir, Art Deco, and German Expressionism channeled through the talents of the greatest up-and-coming artists of the day.

The story of a utopian city with architecture that drove its inhabitants mad and the never-sleeping architect who quested tirelessly for a cure,
Mister X captivated a generation of comics fans and creators, transforming the landscape of their chosen medium forever.

Still as inspiring and compelling as the first time it saw print, the entire run of
Mister X written by Dean Motter gets the deluxe treatment in this volume, every page of its groundbreaking artwork painstakingly restored.

Mister X changed the way comics looked, and it changed the way we looked at comics. And it told a hell of a story in the process.” — Warren Ellis, from his foreword

Frank Miller

•Creator of Sin City

Perhaps the first legitimate combination of science fiction and German Expressionism seen in comics.

•Music magazine

Mister X is one of the greats: the speed-addicted, sleepless, sunglasses wearing architect of the insanity-inducing Radiant City. A high-contrast blend of Art Deco design, noir accents and flying cars, Dean Motter’s sci-fi opus remains a high point of retro-futurist comic coolness.

Warren Ellis

•Writer, Transmetropolitan, Planetary

Mister X changed the way comics looked, and it changed the way we looked at comics. And it told a hell of a story in the process.
