by Charles Burns - Graphic Novel

Doug is a young man with a lot of troubles…the first of which is seemingly his mind. At the beginning of Charles Burns's X'ED OUT, the first volume in a series, he disappears into a rabbit hole that is actually a hole in the wall of his room, and he's guided to it by his long-dead cat, Inky. Something is obviously amiss in Doug's world and in his head, and it's fascinating to see where it all leads.

The setting: suburban Seattle, the mid-1970s. We learn from the outset that a strange plague has descended upon the area’s teenagers, transmitted by sexual contact. The disease is manifested in any number of ways --- from the hideously grotesque to the subtle (and concealable) --- but once you’ve got it, that’s it. There’s no turning back.
