Charles Burns set his novel series in the suburbs of Seattle during the mid-1970s, as the comics follow a group of mostly middle class teenagers who, over the summer, contract a mysterious sexually transmitted disease known as "the Bug" or "the teen plague", which causes them to develop bizarre unique physical mutations turning them into social outcasts. Black Hole was published as a 12-issue comic book limited series between 1995 and 2004. The first four issues were released by Kitchen Sink Pres s; after Kitchen Sink went out of business, Fantagraphics republished the first four issues and the remaining eight. A compiled hardcover volume was released by Pantheon Books in 2005. This collected edition, however, lacks many pages that were included in the first publication-the ones that showed some characters' faces. These pages are considered by some critics to be essential. The first four issues of this set are the first editions printed by Kitchen Sink Press. This is a complete collection of all 12 issues and are all first printings and were published between 1995 and 2004. These copies appear to have never been read and were found bagged and boarded in a protected environ. One of the seminal works of the graphic novel genre--arguably the single most important graphic works produced in the mid-nineties by one of the great masters of the art form and a towering figure in the graphic novel comic book movement.
Each issue features full-color front and back covers with Burn's great bold black and white drawings inside along with wonderful different endsheets for each issue. This is a rare opportunity to own this magnificent complete set. Reader Discretion Advised, for adults only over 18.Thank you for visiting Katerina Kollectibles!
