Black Hole

By: Charles Burn

Pages: 368

Published: 2005

2 out of 5

I do not understand the horror reference that many other reviewers mention. Creepy, Yes. Disturbing, Yes. But horrifying I just didn’t feel. The most disturbing aspect for me wasn’t even the story itself, but how in the world did the author come up with the plot and drawings (acid trip, maybe?).  I was a little confused on the reason Chris felt the need to run away and hide from parents, while none of the other teens did. Although not uncommon for graphic novels, I felt the characters lacked character and I was missing part of the story. I did appreciate the drawings and especially the style of the teens; they reflected the 70’s drug age well.
