Dean Motter pencils and inks; page 3, title page; 2013; image size 9" x 13.5"

Incredibly rare artwork by Motter from his long running, hugely influential, new wave detective series. Mr. X began in the early 1980s, and while all of the series is written and designed by Motter, he has very rarely provided the artwork himself. The series has been drawn over the years by a series of notable artists, including the Hernandez Brothers, Paul Rivoche, Seth, and D'Israeli. Mr. X's influence has been widespread, it's been called out as an influence on films such as Tim Burton's Batman and Terry Gilliam's Brazil. This title page is from Motter's return to the series after a hiatus, handling both writing and art duties, the classic, futuristic noir elements take center stage here in this beautifully designed page. Pen and ink on vellum. Art is in excellent condition. signed and inscribed by Motter.
