5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and twisted, 27 Jun. 2013

This review is from: Black Hole (Hardcover)
The art work in this graphic novel is excellent and the storyline is also of a high quality. Definitely not for children though. To say the plot is all about teenage angst would be a little harsh, but I think it would be fair to say that the main theme probably centres around the issues faced with being a teenager and awkward transition from childhood into adulthood. There are a few subtexts interweaved with the main narrative, both cultural and ideological but for me the main draw is the way the stroy is told, increasing with intensity as it progresses. I like the way the reader is allowed to make their own conclusions at the end, although I did feel slightly disappointed some of the threads where left unresolved... I might have to read it a few more times to really get it though. Good book and worth adding to your collection, if you don't already own it. I'll be checking out more of Charles Burns' work soon.
