Don't let the cover fool you — this, the eighth issue in the incomparable series from the dark pen of Charles Burns, is the "sex" issue. Adolescence explodes into adulthood in the latest two chapters. In "Lizard Queen," Keith and Eliza kill some time on a warm spring night by getting high at the dump she lives in with a couple of amateur drug dealers. Oh yeah — and Keith loses his virginity when they make the beast-with-two-backs (and one tail). The second story, "I'm Sorry," follows Chris and her boyfriend Rob while they've been "visiting" at her campsite in the woods. Rob leaves, promising to return after dinner. While walking in the woods, his path is blocked by the mysterious monster boy we've seen lurking in the background a few times before. Uh...then he clubs Rob to death with an iron pipe. As his life is slipping away, the tiny mouth on Rob's neck speaks — revealing more mystery. If you like that tingly feeling you get just after twilight then Black Hole is for you!

"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
