A shadowy life spews forth from Harvey Award winning Charles Burns' dark pen once again, filling the page with an angst-ridden story of survival in a self-created civilization. Left alone in the woods to fend for herself, Chris finds hunger overwhelming and the wait for her boyfriend Rob doubly trying. Newly deflowered Keith takes her away from the cold tent and into his house. Everyone wonders why he's being so nice...Black Hole is probably the best portrayal of the uncertainty and desire of teenagers ever.
