Format: Paperback
I first read the 'Black Hole' hardback complete collection by Charles Burns a couple of years ago and I loved it so much, so when I started looking into what other graphic novels he had produced I came across 'Big Baby' and a few others. The are all a bit short though and leave you hungry for more, I think someone should just make a massive Charles Burns collection and publish that instead! Having said that, 'Big Baby' is an excellent collection of short stories depicting a creepy kid who has an over active imagination. 'Curse of the Moleman' was my favourite because it envoked some of that old classic horror comic spirit. I would reccomend this book to anyone who has enough money to also buy El Borbah and Skin Deep at the same time just so you have enough to get by with, as 'Big Baby' is really not long enough Great pictures though, typical eerie Charles Burns style illustrations with details that are missed the first time round and spotted with surprise on the second or third read.

Format: Paperback
Big Baby is a series of comics Burns did in the mid 80s and early 90s about an alien-looking kid nicknamed Big Baby. They're drawn in Burns' inimitable and unique style, all inky blacks and glaring whites, and show you the early formations of some of the ideas that led Burns to create "Black Hole".

"Curse of the Molemen" is about a neighbour who's having a swimming pool put in as a warped test of his wife's fidelity - will she cheat on him with one of the workmen? One of these workmen teases Big Baby that there's molemen in the hole and so one night Big Baby goes to the hole and imagines a subterranean prison with evil looking creatures holding humans captive. The story ends happily though and on an ambiguous note - did he imagine the molemen?

"Teen Plague" is similar to the themes of "Black Hole" and features one of Burns' most disturbing creations - a talking eyeball on a human body!

"Blood Club" is about a ghost boy at a summer camp and Big Baby's attempts to put the spirit to rest.

The stories all feature elements of growing up and childhood which many of us can relate to but Burns twists them with monsters and other-wordly beings.

It's an interesting book with a great central character and some fun, disturbing stories. If you've read Burns before and liked him, you'll love it. Amazing artwork too. A good read.

If you like comics, graphic novels, or appreciate fine but off the wall art, you MUST buy this book immediately. Charles Burns is an artist without peer. His work is spooky and atmospheric and leaves you desperatley wishing there was more of it. The stories are downright bizarre, but that only compliments his mad artistic vision. Unquestionably one of the finest minds working in the field today. Buy this book now. Now! NOW!!!!

Charles Burns books are always entertaining with a unique style. This book doesn't disappoint but the tales were not as good as Skin Deep or El Borbah. If you have both of them already though, this book is perfect.
