October 6th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Dark Horse announces the next series from visionary artist and designer Dean Motter: Mister X: Razed.

The intrigue in Radiant City never sleeps in this tale that is both Christmas story and murder mystery. With the start of a new series, Mister X: Razed serves as a great jumping-on point for new readers!

Radiant City is a metropolis as mysterious as its alleged creator—Mister X. The architecture that should’ve improved the city has left it cursed. Now, Mister X must watch over the City of Dreams turned City of Nightmares, keeping vigil during a holiday season that’s anything but jolly.

Mister X: Razed #1 is on sale February 25, 2015. Preorder your copy today

Praise for Dean Motter’s Mister X:

“A visual treat for those that remember a time that never was.”—Ain’t It Cool News

“Motter has created his own off-beat, stylized cityscape, and even when it engages with contemporary culture it does so in its own unique way.”⎯ Comic Book Resources

“This is a fun story. Through his writing and illustration, Motter weaves together a Dick Tracy/Dark City type comic, combining excellent noir fiction with a morose, retro-futuristic feel.”—Geeks of Doom

“Sexy, scary and funny, compelling and visually astounding.”—Now Read This!

“It’s unlike anything else on the shelf right now—and if you happen to spot something that is, it’s probably because Motter’s work influenced it.”—IGN

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
