Way back in the 1980s there was a very cool looking comic book called Mister X. The first four issues were created by Los Bros Hernandez of Love and Rockets. They left after 4 issues due to payment issues from the comic publisher, and although Dean Motter did an admirable job I never thought the comic reached its potential. The visual style of the series was amazing, however, and I always thought I was disappointed by the stories only because they could never live up to the impossible standards of the look. Maybe nothing can. The Wikipedia article for the comic series states that you can see its influence in the movies Brazil, the first Tim Burton Batman, and Dark City. All are visually striking movies that are interesting but flawed.
The series was set in Radiant City, and the protagonist was an architect of sorts with a radical theory of psychetecture, wherein bad architecture would cause everyone to go mad. He ran around the city trying to fix things, some of which he had put wrong himself. Here is a cover gallery for the series, and here is a nice essay on the series. Also, a simple google image search will quickly tell you just how cool this comic book looked.
With all that as background, I left my office last night, and it was very foggy, the pavement was wet from an all-day rain, and on top of that there were some construction vents spewing out steam. I had oddly left my cameras at home but pulled out my iPhone. When I saw the lone man walking I grabbed my first shot. I took several more, but this one stood out. This reminds me so much of Radiant City and the shadowy silhouette walking alone really evokes Mister X to me.
