Review: X’ed #3
A tale of hitmen, corporate warfare, and assassins injected into your brain to murder your darkest memories, X’ed explodes into issue 3 evoking a high speed collision of The Invisibles and Global Frequency. In this issue, subliminal hitman Colin McClure ventures deeper into the unconscious than he’s ever dared and uncovers a secret that his corporate oversees never wanted exposed.
X’ed #3 is interesting, entertaining, mind-bending, and leaves you wanting more. When you thought this comic couldn’t get any more mind-bending, writer Tony Patrick brings in something called a mind****. Which are more like bad memories on steroids, violent mind altering steroids. Colin’s journey down someone’s mind, he finds things his employer didn’t want him to know. In parallel to this, his employer taken over by masked men, insect drones and his bosses girlfriend of sorts.
Like previous issues, the art work by Doug Garbark is gorgeous. Even subtle at times, as more memories are revealed. I will the mind**** things are creepy, subtle, and filled with intriguing details.
