Joe the Barbarian
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?
