- Item details
Doug is in a miserable condition. A mysterious head injury ties him to the bed, and no medicine in the world could dispel the nightmarish images that plague him in his feverish delusion ... pigs, razorblades, black cats, festering wounds ... And not to mention: eggs. Strange eggs.
With "X" Charles Burns fulminates back: his told in flashbacks and dream sequences drama about the teenager Doug, who threatens to lose all connection to reality, blurs for the reader in a disturbing way, the boundaries between imagination and reality. William Burroughs meets Hergé.
Charles Burns is considered one of the great stylists of the comics, thanks to his atmospheric drawings characterized by strong black and white contrasts. "Black Hole", a grandiose distorted mirror image of American reality, is a classics genre that is still unrivaled to this day.
