From the Publisher:
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.
Annotation:
This psychedelic and disturbing black-and-white graphic novel collects a series of 12 comic books. Set in mid-?70s Seattle, it captures both the bizarre mysteries of puberty and the stigma of AIDS. A group of teenagers are literally and figuratively changed forever when several of them get "the bug," a mysterious sexually transmitted disease that causes various kinds of repulsive-looking mutations.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"[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) 08/08/2005

Entertainment Weekly
"[Y]ou'll be hard-pressed not to get sucked into this black-and-white teenage wasteland." 10/28/2005

New York Times Book Review
"Burns's intricate, controlled and pulpy penwork...is one of the most recognizable styles in comics, and BLACK HOLE is his masterwork: an uncanny imitation of traditional comics at their most mannered and melodramatic, invigorated by the shock of the deeply human and the deeply weird." - John Hodgman 12/04/2005
