Exciting, experimental and challenging – it’s controversial Scottish stand-up comedian Frankie Boyle’s first comics work. Join the crazy adventures of superscientist CEO Rex Royd!
From an interview with Frankie Boyle: “I wanted to try to do something that came from the heart. The state-of-the-art in comics always seemed a bit linear and it seems so unambitious. I wanted to do different sections from an overall story you didn’t see all of. I just f****** love comics and I’m keen to develop the whole thing in the least comic book way possible! Rex is complex, but you don’t necessarily need to follow everything. I’m not asking the reader to work as much as have an open mind.”
Each Rex Royd chapter takes us further into the vivid imagination of stand-up comedian and writer, Frankie Boyle – backed up by stunning, stylish art by Mike Dowling and Budi Setiawan. The action takes place at RexCorp, a corporation where violence is the day job. RexCorp is headed up by superscientist CEO Rex Royd, indestructible Alan Black, and Eve. How will they cope against the incalculable power of the extraterrestrial Proteoman? All this plus memory implants, drug-addicted schizophrenics, sex-travelling aliens, Thunder God suicides – and more.
As the events of the second movie rage, Rama, main character of The Raid, is trapped in prison. Can he protect an undercover cop? Can he even protect himself? Meanwhile, Jakarta crime boss Bejo begins causing havoc in the outside world as he strives to gain more and more power – ably assisted by two familiar faces: Hammer Girl and Baseball Bat Man…
Titan Comics has announced Rex Royd, the anarchic, hilarious and controversial graphic novel from comedian Frankie Boyle. Collecting together the first seven chapters originally featured in CLiNT Magazine, plus the final, never-before-seen chapters 8 and 9, this volume tells the whole, unexpurgated story of super-scientist, businessman and evil genius Rex Royd…
Frankie Boyle is well-known for his shocking comedy – he shot to fame as a regular panellist on Mock The Week, regularly tours the UK with sell-out stand-up shows and in 2017 was commissioned by BBC Two to make Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, which returned this year for a second series.
He brings the full force of his imagination and unique sense of humour to Rex Royd By day, Rex is the suave CEO of RexCorp, working alongside indestructible Alan Black, and Eve (yes, the original Eve). But by night, he is the scourge of superheroes, the Bilderberg Group and even God himself. All this plus memory implants, drug-addicted schizophrenics, sex-travelling aliens, Thunder God suicides – and more.
