From today's Fantagraphics Newsletter

Back Hole #12

Quote
The long awaited concluding issue of Charles Burns' decade-long masterpiece of eerie angst.

Still on the run, Keith remains optimistic about life with Eliza (the girl with the tail) despite the challenges of maintaining his own reality; while Chris longs for home but finds herself travelling towards the dark emptiness that follows each of these plague-ridden teens. Burns' pen and masterful storytelling ability elicits the paranoia that envelopes the lives of these teens living in mid-70s Seattle. This final issue will leave you feeling completely blown away and queasy at the same time.

Avery and Gaiman Writing Black Hole

Quote
Roger Avery and Neil Gaiman are writing Black Hole, a horror romance story that Alexandre Aja will direct for Paramount Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter. MTV Films, Plan B and Kevin Messick are producing.

Black Hole is a 12-issue comic book painstakingly written and illustrated by Charles Burns over a 10-year period that deals with fear of adulthood, sex and ostracism. When the work was finally completed last year, it was collected into a graphic novel, which garnered great acclaim and was in Entertainment Weekly's top 10 works of fiction for the year.

The story follows a group of high school students whose lives are altered drastically when they come in contact with a sexually transmitted disease called the "teen plague" or "the bug."
