In this latest chapter, return to the Ninth Academy, sanitarium for mad scientists-the place that nurtured the minds behind Somnopolis's nightmarish design. Years later, the demolition of the insanity-causing architecture has been temporarily halted after the deaths of an entire sect of architects -- either a tragedy or a conspiracy. In the middle of it all, the enigmatic Mister X continues his frantic quest to find the missing city plans, so he can save Somnopolis while there's still some of it left!

"More fun than its ponderous premise sounds, the tale is enlivened by gangsters, glamour gals, and romantic intrigue . . . the grand design, equal parts Metropolis and film noir, carries the day." -Booklist

    "Mister X: Condemned" demonstrates that Motter's style has aged well. Actually, it seems ageless, probably because "Mister X" has always existed outside the comings and goings of each decade's comic book trends. It's a classic story with a classic look. Motter has created his own off-beat, stylized cityscape, and even when it engages with contemporary culture (as in issue #3's introduction of the "Internette," a row of female telephone operators who find the answer to any question posed to them) it does so in it's own unique way.
