(W) Grant Morrison  (A) Sean Murhpy

Collecting the acclaimed 8-issue miniseries! Joe is an imaginative eleven-year-old boy. He can't fit in at school. He's the victim of bullies. His dad died overseas in the Iraq war. He also suffers from Type 1 diabetes. One fateful day, his condition causes him to believe he has entered a vivid fantasy world in which he is the lost savior - a fantastic land based on the layout and contents of his home. His desperate attempts to make it out of his bedroom transform into an incredible, epic adventure through a bizarre landscape of submarine pirate dwarves, evil Hell Hounds, Lightning Lords and besieged castles. But is his quest really just an insulin deprived delirium - from which he can die if he doesn't take his meds - or something much bigger?

Morrison and Murphy take the reader on a diabetic fever trip through the most fantastic hostilities. Over land, air, and water, accompanied by a noble warrior rat, Joe journeys across a madman's thesis in valor. RECOMMENDED BY PATRICK!!
