Special Containment Procedures: SCP-X is to be contained in standard Storage Locker-4B on Storage Site-64. Routine inspections of the pages of SCP-X should be conducted annually for the chance of anamlous activity.

Description: SCP-X is a copy of Footrot Flats™ Gallery 2 by Zew Zealand cartoonist Murray Ball. The item in question once contained an anomaly in the form of a 17 year-old teenager named John Hooper. John existed solely in the comic book, but was quantum locked in such a way that he could only become animate when out of any line of sight. John was capable of interfering with the text bubbles within the book, and would use them as a primary means of communication. He was also able to hear and understand speech directed at the book.

It is speculated that the teenager was confined to the pages of SCP-X by a reality bender of unknown description, the only information available being a name; Athena. It is believed the reality bender did this as a means of revenge against John's father, Donald Hooper, a retired Unusual Incidents Unit operative.

When in the book, John seemingly aged a certain amount of time every time the book was opened. He eventually expired, estimates of his age at the time being from 50 to 94. After his death, the book was restored to a non-anomalous state, never exhibiting any such activity since.

Recovery: RPC-237 was discovered in a home in ████████, New Zealand, on 23/██/20██. An embedded agent in the local police force encountered SCP-X when a Mr. Donald Hooper was reported to be causing a disturbance at a local police station, insisting that his son was trapped in graphic novel. The agent got in touch with Mr. Hooper, confirming the item was indeed anomalous when communication was made between the agent and John, and the agent secured SCP-X.
