Dark and violent: ‘SXPD’ is a comic book you can play
SXPD is a violent, post-apocalyptic comic book that includes many of the conveniences digital readers have become accustomed to.

But at certain points, the tale about a futuristic, all-female police force shifts from being something you read to something you play. SXPD is an almost seamless blend of comic book and video game, and thanks to director David Perry — best known as creator of the Earthworm Jim series — it’s an excellent one.
