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 saviour - 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 insulin-deprived delirium - from which he can die if he doesn’t take his meds - or something much bigger? Collecting the 8-issue miniseries, written by Grant Morrison, with art and a cover by Sean Murphy
