"Much has happened since we last saw Doug, the Tintin-like hero from X'ed Out
," reads the blurb posted on Amazon.com
"Confessing his past to an unidentified woman, Doug struggles to recall the mysterious incident that left his life shattered, an incident that may have involved his disturbed and now-absent girlfriend Sarah and her menacing ex-boyfriend.
"Doug warily seeks answers in a nightmarish alternate world that is a distorted mirror of our own, where he is a lowly employee [who] carts supplies around the Hive. The second part of Charles Burns's riveting trilogy, this graphic narrative will delight and surpass the expectations of his fans."The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
