Synopsis

Having an overactive imagination can get a kid through a lot, but it doesn't change the facts: Joe's still the kid in school that can't fit in. He's the victim of bullies. His dad died overseas in the Iraq war. And then there's the Type 1 diabetes he has to live with.

So is it insulin-deprived delirium or something much, much bigger that transports Joe to a land inhabited by all his toys - from ninja commandos to action robots to magical knights to star fleet captains? Is Joe really the savior of this wild fantasyland that's been held under siege by dark magic and evil forces? With the help of a samurai rodent, is he ready to take back besieged castles and win the freedom of an oppressed people? Or is he just an over imaginative boy who could die if he doesn't take his meds?

White-hot writer Grant Morrison follows up his phenomenal BATMAN AND ROBIN with an epic adventure that's Home Alone by way of Lord of the Rings accompanied with to-die-for Art by future superstar Sean Murphy (YEAR ONE: BATMAN/SCARECROW, HELLBLAZER).

It's so cool these guys got together for a project. How about the wordless panels? Despite the lack of text the storytelling is profoundly voluminous. And the perspectives Murphy is laying down are very refreshing. He shows off again in the details of the Joe's 70's and 80's home decor. The ish' does get a little trippy but it's to mirror what's going on biologically to a Type 1 diabetic thirteen year old whose sugars are out-of-whack. Clearly, his emotional state is in a bit of a mess too. Added cred for characters with everyday problems. So far so good.
