“An eerie premise that will definitely become a movie…

The pun in the title, of the X-factor of the island they become marooned on and the exile that they are in, is interesting enough to make you pick this book up.

“The cool art is reminiscent of that new Philip K. Dick flick, A Scanner Darkly. It’s wonderfully different and atmospheric. Artist Greg Scott has done a magnificent job. The dialogue and pacing is quick and fast-paced. It is astonishing to see how quickly characters have been made into recognizable assets already.

“I am looking forward to the mystery of this book, evocative of the old monster comics but with that modern twist. ”
