Ten years in the making, Charles Burns' magnum opus careens towards its inevitably apocalyptic conclusion, with only two issues remaining! This tenth issue is printed with the bleakest and blackest of ink to date. Ripe with the stench of infection, the home that Keith's been sitting all summer is now a safe house for kids with the bug. Meanwhile, his courtship of Chris having turned irrevocably black, Keith's futility is palpable until he bumps into a (seemingly) well Eliza at the supermarket. And what of those tadpoles growing out of Keith's ribs? Black Hole masterfully channels teenage angst and drug-induced paranoia, radiating physical dread to tell the haunting story of a plague that strikes mid-'70s Seattle and only afflicts teenagers. One of our finest titles ever.
"Charles Burns's opus Black Hole does for the teen romance what David Lynch's Twin Peaks did for the television soap: it reinvents the genre as a surreal nightmare." – The List
"For connoisseurs of the strange, the appearance of an issue of Charles Burns' Black Hole is cause for celebration [...] Despite the horror trappings, Black Hole remains a fundamentally human story — and one that's beautifully told." – Comics Buyer's Guide
