One of the hottest writers in the industry, Grant Morrison, brings this Home Alone meets The Lord of the Rings story to life.
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 insulindeprived delirium - from which he can die if he doesn't take his meds - or something much bigger?

An a young man's fantasy world while undergoing a glycimia attack leading him on an epic journey for survival while confronting the recent loss of his father. A fascinating weaving of real and fantasy that reminded me of "The Neverending Story" by Michael Ende but modernized and told in an amazing graphic style.

The only complain i have is the ending, it could have been much more emotional and fulfilling but except it feels rushed and unceremonial
