Madame Xanadu #25

Madame Xanadu #25 is the second issue of a story arc called "Extra-Sensory", with this chapter titled "Dirty Little Mouth". As with the first chapter of this arc, each issue of "Extra-Sensory" can be read as a great self-contained story, that works for long time readers of this title as well as for someone just picking up Madame Xanadu for the first time.

Each issue of this current Madame Xanadu arc, besides being self-contained, also features a different artist doing each issue. With "Dirty Little Mouth", this month's special Madame Xanadu artist is Laurenn McCubbin (Quit City with Warren Ellis and the graphic novel, Rent Girl), who also colors the issue. This issue is a lot of fun, about a guy who can hear the horrible things people have done (doesn't just the title of this story make you want to pick it up?), but it's the clean, crisp, fine art line of Laurenn McCubbin that makes this story really pop. Laurenn McCubbin has called Las Vegas home for the past few years and I'm happy to have an artist of her caliber in my backyard (and those of you who remember one of Alternate Reality Comics' former Sunday employees, will recognize said person in this issue - who also happens to be married to Laurenn McCubbin).
