A collection of the Black Hole cartoonist’s secret, self-published sketchbooks and zines.
Since 2000, master cartoonist Charles Burns has been self-publishing a secret, handmade sketchbook zine titled Free S**t, exclusively for friends and VIPs. For the first time, Burns has compiled all twenty-five issues into a single pocket-sized volume for all of his fans to enjoy. Featuring finished drawings, rough sketches, process pieces, and more, the book is a revealing behind-the-scenes look at how characters and motifs in acclaimed works like Black Hole and Last Look have evolved.
“This compendium of unsettling images is a disgusting gem bound to be adored by Burns’s followers.” — Publishers Weekly
“Free S**t shows us the push and pull between alluring and disturbing. Burns’ imagination is full of ugly, hideous creatures but his presentation of them is simply gorgeous and mesmerizing.” — Panel Patter
