Black Hole review

Posted : 14 years, 2 months ago on 12 May 2010 04:05

Erotic, yet nauseating. Hopeful, yet bleak.
One of the most human graphic novels I've encountered, reads as good as it looks. Burns' distinct illustrative style in stark black and white creates a duality of comfort and fear. Visceral and hallucinatory, perhaps hypnotic, there is a constant pairing of warm, sensual familiarity and inimical sickening estrangement.
A relatively quick read, but leaves you thinking long afterward.
