    Well, the art was very lovely, and there were a lot of points at which I was like, How does his brain manufacture this shit which is kind of the ultimate for art in one way, isn t it But I do wish this had been around when I myself was a bad teenager, because I m sure it would ve affected me a lotthen Burns does get at some extremely dark and re

    Adolescence as DiseaseCharles Burns s Black Hole is a strange and somewhat disturbing graphic novel depicting some teens engaging in drinking, smoking pot, and sexual acts Ho hum, eh It is also one of the best graphic novels and novels of any kind of the new century If a black hole is the effect of gravity pulling so hard on a site in space that light ca

    ME Everyone raves about this book It s one of like ten graphic novels everyone is supposed to read and love.Me It looks creepy.ME It s creepy, but it s also artsy and intellectual and a big metaphor about something important.Me What s the metaphor ME There s a scary sexually transmitted disease, so AIDS Me I m not buying it.ME Well, read it anyway Trust me It ll

    This graphic novel is so weird and twistedyet, at the same time, makes so much sense The first image below is just a taste of what you are getting into if you give this a try.Standard adult graphic novel warning the images in this book may be too disturbing for some There are depictions of violence, sex, nudity, disfigurement, etc Just putting that out there so if you see

    We watched Riverdale recently, The CW s newish series based on the Archie comics, and I found it a frustrating experience It had all the elements that I normally love namely, small town America, murder, secrets and sexual tension among high schoolers and yet it didn t go nearly dark enough or deep enough to really hit the spot I was fretting vaguely about these themes for some tim

    Black Hole is not about depression, but it nearly gave me one Alienated teenagers Teenage angst Coming of age A plethora of drug abuse and sex Not my favourite topics to read about, but the story was strangely intriguing And nightmarish I hope I can sleep well tonightI don t dare to recommend this disturbing book to anyone.

    A sexually transmitted disease is infecting teenagers, a disease that mutates anyone that catches it But what happens to the people who catch the teenage plague I m a recent convert to Charles Burns so I was eager to try this, his multiple award winner The awards were totally justified because Black Hole is awesome.Set in the Seattle suburbs of the 1970s, Black Hole is the story of teenagers caught in a bla

    You guys sound ed upWhat re you on, anywayJill s older sister, a minor character coincidentally echoing what I d like to ask the author after finishing this bookI was hoping to have a good time reading Black Hole thinking it would be something like if Stephen King wrote his version of the screenplay for Dazed and Confused but instead it left me creeped out and not in that squicky fun way that occasionally works for

    In truth, Black Hole should probably only rate three stars, but it s such an impressive effort and intriguing concept I m giving it four Stylistically, Burns art is extremely intricate and has a very nice noir quality to it I have a soft spot for any really well done horror comic book Like Adrian Tomine, Burns has obviously taken plenty of tricks from Clowes and Crumb The strange thing about his art style is that even though
