With his use of just two colors--black and white--Charles Burns captures adolescent isolation in horrifyingly poetic way.
Black Hole chronicles the challenging decisions and the strange feelings that teens experience as they turn into adults. As someone who studied to teach high school English, this needs to be on more reading lists, or at least on hand to let students know they're not alone.
Sharp inking and dense, deep blacks set the mood for dread in this comic. Handles its allegory of adolescence=mutation surprisingly well. Some moments that are both creepy and sexy. Cons: Much of the horror is set at a slow burn.
