From Black Mask Studios and creators Tony Patick and Ayhan Hayrula, Enter the world of X’ED. A sci-fi thriller about a next-gen form of psychiatry: “subliminal hitmen” injected into your mind who hunt down and kill the demons that haunt you. Ex-military sharpshooter Colin McClure is Mezign Corporation’s most recent recruit for the still-experimental (and often deadly) job of subliminal hitman. McClure is the perfect candidate for two reasons: a) he’s a killing machine, and b) he lost his legs in the war, so subliminal-ops are his only way to see any action. But he’s also a dangerous candidate for one reason unknown to Mezign: Colin’s true motive is to enter the mind of his catatonic daughter and bring her out of a coma.
X’ED is brought to you by newcomer Tony Patrick along with artists Ayhan Hayrul (Channel 1%). Tony Patrick has crafted a slam-dunk concept that merges all the things we love about comics: complex characters, surreal locations, mind-bending concepts, and non-stop action. Ayhan’s sophisticated linework brings a smart and grounded feel to the otherworldly actioner.
Although this is Tony’s comic writing debut, he actually interned at Milestone Comics as a kid. After years of touring the world as a musician, Tony returned to New York to mentor youth in East NY and commit to his lifelong love of comics. He teamed up with Ayhan Hayrula to bring the brain-crunching world of X’ED to life.
