Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
A chilling graphic novel set in suburban Seattle during the mid-1970s describes the lives of the area's teenagers, who are suddenly faced with a devastating, disfiguring, and incurable plague that has descended on the young people of Seattle.

Review:
"[D]ense, unnerving....Burns's art is inhumanly precise, and he makes ordinary scenes as creepy as his nightmare visions of a world where intimacy means a life worse than death." (starred review)

Publishers Weekly, 08/08/2005

Review:
"[Y]ou'll be hard-pressed not to get sucked into this black-and-white teenage wasteland."

Entertainment Weekly, 10/28/2005

Book Description: Pantheon Books, United States, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 240 x 176 mm. Brand New Book. Suburban Seattle, the mid-1970s. We learn from the out-set that a strange plague has descended upon the area s teenagers, transmitted by sexual contact. The disease is manifested in any number of ways -- from the hideously grotesque to the subtle (and concealable) -- but once you ve got it, that s it. There s no turning back. As we inhabit the heads of several key characters -- some kids who have it, some who don t, some who are about to get it -- what unfolds isn t the expected battle to fight the plague, or bring heightened awareness to it, or even to treat it. What we become witness to instead is a fascinating and eerie portrait of the nature of high school alienation itself -- the savagery, the cruelty, the relentless anxiety and ennui, the longing for escape. And then the murders start. As hypnotically beautiful as it is horrifying, Black Hole transcends its genre by deftly exploring a specific American cultural moment in flux and the kids who are caught in it- back when it wasn t exactly cool to be a hippie anymore, but Bowie was still just a little too weird. To say nothing of sprouting horns and molting your skin. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780375423802
