Go, Look: Mr. X Gallery


For no particular reason, someone sent me a link to this gallery for Mr. X, one of three or four out of a thousand 1980s characters not to enjoy a recent comeback in hopes of a movie contract. I have no idea if the rights situation would even allow that kind of publication. In fact, I had no idea there was a volume 3.

It strikes me, though, that Mr. X kind of underlines the difference between comics right now and comics 15-20 years ago, in that a pretty limited concept that might have carried one story (and one movie) with some aplomb was hammered fairly thin attempting to support a longer series. Some people will disagree, of course. Anyway, I don't see that happening as much nowadays.
