review 1: Charles Burns is a genius. _Black Hole_ ranks highly on my list of favorite comics. Apparently, I got a bit turned around as I just read this volume because Liesel gave it to me for Christmas without reading the first volume _Xed Out_. Still, Burns is amazing in his merging of st...

review 1: A good overview of the year in comics. An update on some of my favorite writers and artists (including the long-silent Daniel Clowes with the excellent, understated "Justin M. Damiano" and Chris Ware with "Jordan W. Lint") as well as an introduction to unfamiliar ones (Adrian Tom...

review 1: I'm obsessed with Charles Burns' drawings. He's able to capture faces in vivid detail with a few lines, his coloring is always vibrant and subdued at the same time, and his panel layout is like an art film. There's so much stuffed into a few pages that I always have to let myself...

review 1: When I was in elementary school there was a girl in my class who, to my juvenile eyes, was the most perfect and beautiful creature I’d ever seen. Therefore, I concluded, she must be a robot. No human being, inherently flawed and full of fluids that often leaked out of porous skin...

review 1: I've always been a sucker for Burns' surrealistic dream-state comics and The Hive is a successful continuation of this. Comics are the perfect medium for things to be really fucked up and odd. I'm not a super fan of realist comics with everything making sense all the time - it do...

review 1: "The Hive" is a surreal tale about Doug, an aimless kid who performs as the mascot to a local punk band named Bacon and has a disturbed girlfriend who obsessively reads Romance Comics. The story takes a few turns to his mascot character who delivers romance comics to sick, dying ...

review 1: X'ed Out reminded me a lot of Dan Clowes' Like A Velvet Glove Cast In Iron. They both share a creepy surrealism, filled with nighmarish images of beautiful girls taking selfies of themselves in bondage, maggots with faces being eaten, cutting parties, and more. All this squeamish...
