Descrições do Produto

Sobre o Autor

Charles Burns grew up in Seattle in the 1970s. His work rose to prominence in Art Spiegelman’s Raw magazine in the mid-1980s and took off from there, in an extraordinary range of comics and projects, from Iggy Pop album covers to the latest ad campaign for Altoids. In 1992 he designed the set for Mark Morris’s delightful restaging of The Nutcracker (renamed The Hard Nut) at BAM. He’s illustrated covers for Time, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Magazine. He was also tapped as the official cover artist for The Believer magazine at its inception in 2003. Burns lives in Philadelphia with his wife and two daughters.

5.0 de 5 estrelas WEIRD, but AWESOME. 16 de junho de 2016
Por S Mills - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
Charles Burns, Black Hole (Pantheon, 2005)

This was a fantastic read. I originally bought the book for my Weird Literature course in college. I think “Weird” may be one of the only words that adequately explain it. With that said, we DID spend the entire semester reading work after work in order to create a sort of definition for Weird, as a term and as a micro-genre.

I’ll avoid plot-summary, as other reviewers have me topped, there. The story certainly avoids falling into a “single-story” narrative. This does not reduce down to a clear analogy - the main “point” of the story does not come out immediately while reading. This, although may seem at the moment to be a trivial detail, is very important. At least, I think so. The plot is not *simple.* Yes, there are clear allusions to popular society, and real issues that teens definitely face all the time, but the delivery skews things up, a little.

The art style allows for the blending of characters. If you don’t pay attention, you may mistake one character for another - and *I* think this was intentional, interesting, and useful. Maybe the point isn’t about individual characters, anymore. We may be seeing a shift, here, towards something else.

Building off this - the plot isn’t linear, so the audience has to work diligently to figure out *exactly* what is going on, or else read the story multiple times. This leaves room for suspense and frequent, small epiphanies. So again, maybe we’re shifting away from straight-plot and character-driven stories to a different method of storytelling.

It’s all ineffable, though. I dunno. Regardless of this ridiculously terrible attempt at a book review, you SHOULD buy this book. Graphic novels are awesome, anyways, don’t you think? It’s hard to go wrong.

Black Hole is phenomenal. Certainly Weird. Definitely for mature audiences, though. 5 Stars.
5.0 de 5 estrelas I got your copy 9 de novembro de 2016
Por Ellis Goodson - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I just finished Black Hole by Charles Burns. It was interesting. It is teen angst mixed with nightmare tripping into alienation that is manifested as a psychological wilderness of woods surrounding the awful suburb civilization. No one is happy except when they find love and that love is going to end sooner than later. There is also a phobic allegory dealing with body damaging STDs. Another piece of the alienation quilt. The art style guides the reader straight into the queasy mood of the nervous storytellers.

Because it is an older book, when you buy it these days you’ll probably buy second hand. My copy had little dog-ear bookmarks, either top or bottom, about every 5 pages. Annoying considering the heavy card stock it is printed on. The book also features penciled in pagination at the bottom. That mysteriously quits at page 304. So if that sounds familiar, I got your copy of the book.

I donated the book to the library.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Sex, Drugs, and Disease 25 de março de 2014
Por Hannah - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I read Black Hole for my graphic novel class. I had never heard of, and had no idea what to expect. Although it doesn't have page numbers, Goodreads says it is 352 pages long. It felt a lot shorter than that, as it moved extremely quickly. I finished it in two sittings. However, the content makes it seem longer -- this was a strange book.

Black Hole

I honestly got confused with this plot, which isn't something I can say about a lot of novels. This may have been, in part, because of the fact that two male characters (and even the main female character) all looked alike -- they all had black shoulder length hair with short bangs. I plan to go back through, and reread the novel again knowing that the two guys, Keith and Rob, are not the same person. Now this may have been a hard mistake to make for some, but it made things a little confusing at first for me.

I believe the basic plot takes place in the 70s and is structured around Rob and Chris, who have a rocky start to a relationship, and their various friends. The other possible main character is Keith, who I figured out was a separate person from Rob about halfway in... All these people are somehow dealing with a type of 'bug' or disease that is being spread through sexual contact/saliva that physically disfigures people in strange ways (facial restructuring, growing new body parts -- Rob's second mouth, for example). This was really odd, and not well explained, but interesting all the same. This disease is incurable, and makes people social outcasts. Many who have it resort to living in the woods, stealing food to get by, and avoiding normal society.

One thing that really struck me about this book was, unsurprisingly, the artwork. Partially because the characters do drugs quite a bit, and also partially due to the weirdness of their world, the artwork was beautiful and mind-opening, and just absolutely wonderful in every way. I know it sounds like I'm fawning over the art -- probably because I am. One character does artwork throughout the book, and you get to see some of it, and even that is wonderful in a weird, disturbing way. I spent much longer taking in the details of the strange layout (when Rob is tripping on LSD) than looking at the words that just described what he was seeing. The panels start to get wavy, start to weave into one another, and start to change shape when things get trippy -- I feel this was a fantastic way to help the reader know what the characters were experiencing.

If you don't have an open mind about drugs, sex, and horrible teenage actions, I would warn you away from this book. However, if you are open to that sort of thing, I would highly recommend it. Even the 'sexual' drawings, shoot, even the art from the pornographic magazines, didn't feel out of place or negative. It all fit in so well with the content of the story, that I think it really worked. The only downside (if I can even call it that) is the confusing plot. I think on a second read, everything will clear up a bit. Though I know some of it won't -- that's part of the mystery of the book; the full spreads of black pages with a few white, spiraling objects makes you question the story, the characters, and their motives. Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and definitely plan to reread it soon.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Much ado about The Bug. 2 de setembro de 2011
Por Blake Belleman - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
There is something I feel like I need to put out there so that potential buyers know what they're buying. This is a dark, sci-fi comic about kids coming of age. That is exactly what it is. Like all other stories using the coming of age archetype there are ups and downs, failed starts and missed connections. Maybe you heard that this is a comic about an STD called The Bug which mutates those that contract it and think that it will be some sci-fi thriller more akin to The Fly rather than say... The Breakfast Club. While that comparison may be a tad harsh, I think it's true. You have a smattering of teens from various backgrounds and it follows them as they learn to deal with the prejudices against them and how they will get by in this new life.

Do not get me wrong, this is still a great read and I have gladly reread it a few times, but I was definitely expecting something else going into it.

The characters are memorable and the struggles are comparable to those that any teen goes through: self-discovery, the future vs the now, who can you trust and who are your real friends, what it means to love... These are all tropes that we're familiar with but with a new angle. The Bug is only a catalyst for the events in the book, and although I would have liked to known more about it and where it came from, that does not make the story any worse for wear. That being said, I felt that something was missing. Maybe I would have liked it more if the story wasn't set so fiercely on this handful of teens. I would have liked to see what the parents were doing and how they felt. I wanted to know why some characters were stalwart loners while others were paranoid clingers. Regardless, I would recommend this book easily, I would just make sure to stress that this is not a story about The Bug, but rather about kids with The Bug.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Wished for a Better Ending 20 de maio de 2013
Por Timothy Haugh - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
This is a very clever idea for a book: a new STD appears among a group of teenagers. This particular STD causes the body to be "disfigured" in unpredictable and grotesque ways. A kid might grow a tail, or an extra mouth, or webbed fingers... It quickly makes these young people outcasts, who have to try to figure out what to do with themselves. Some try to hide their differences and fit in while others take to the woods and live on their own.

The artwork here is also very good. The story is told in black and white but much heavier on the black than the white. Some pages seem almost completely awash in ink with only pinpricks and slashes of white showing through to create the images. It is beautiful and eerie, completely appropriate to the story.

If there is a weakness here it is that the story doesn't quite live up to the set-up and the art. The plot builds only very gradually and the pay-off isn't really worth the time invested in getting to it. It felt like Mr. Burns got a bit weary, and ended things quickly with a cliché-ridden bow. Still, for the most part, there's a lot to enjoy.
