Relentlessly Hard Boiled – Preview X #23 From Dark Horse

The vigilante comic X, from Dark Horse, is still doing what it does best, being relentlessly hard-boiled! Issue #23 is coming up March 11th and promises a city become an "insane asylum", a new ravaging drug that's highly addictive and a dark nemesis from X's past of the female variety. You just can't help but think "poor guy".

STK665425This run of X, written by Duane Swierczynski, with art by Eric Nguyen and gorgeous cover art by Rafael Albuquerque, shows some pretty excellent visual storytelling already.

Issue #23 is described thus by Dark Horse:

The city zone destroyed in the battle between the Archon and the Mark has become an insane asylum, as new, highly addictive drug gains control of ordinary Arcadians. X goes on the hunt for the operation's ringleader, but a rival vigilante-a shadowy woman from X's past-stands in his way!

And here's our visceral preview–note those panel compositions and the active angles:
