'Mister X,' Dean Motter and Various
The world of comics is filled with many bald white men, young and old: Charlie
Brown, Charles Xavier, Jimmy Corrigan. Of all these hair-impaired males, Mister X is one of the greats: the speed-addicted, sleepless, sunglasses wearing architect of the insanity-inducing Radiant City. A high-contrast blend of Art Deco design, noir accents and flying cars, Dean Motter's sci-fi opus remains a high point of retro-futurist comic coolness.
