VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
Written by Grant Morrison Art by Sean Murphy Cover by Sean Murphy

Having an overactive imagination can get a kid through a lot, but it doesn't change the facts: Joe's still the kid in school that can't fit in. He's the victim of bullies. His dad died overseas in the Iraq war. And then there's the Type 1 diabetes he has to live with. So is it insulin-deprived delirium or something much, much bigger that transports Joe to a land inhabited by all his toys - from ninja commandos to action robots to magical knights to star fleet captains? Is Joe really the savior of this wild fantasyland that's been held under siege by dark magic and evil forces? With the help of a samurai rodent, is he ready to take back besieged castles and win the freedom of an oppressed people? Or is he just an over imaginative boy who could die if he doesn't take his meds? White-hot writer Grant Morrison follows up his phenomenal BATMAN AND ROBIN with an epic adventure that's Home Alone by way of Lord of the Rings accompanied with to-die-for art by future superstar Sean Murphy (YEAR ONE: BATMAN/SCARECROW, HELLBLAZER).!

BONUS REVIEW by KIRK JACKSON

This book embodies every kid’s greatest dream and nightmare at the same time. Yeah, the hero keeps finding himself in an ultra cool world inhabited by ultra cool living versions of his toys, but he’s completely lost control of his reality-view in the process. The art, as in issue one, is beautiful and chaotic at the same time. And that’s what this book has to offer: truly beautiful chaos. Although I don’t understand why any child would fight against the visions of robots and warriors Joe’s been blessed with, I have no problem following his struggle.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
