For this post, I prepared two things: an interview with Charles Burns and a Black Hole Movie! 🙂
Did you know that Charles Burns is very interested in mutations? There were reasons why he was inspired by mutations. Also, remember that this comic book is quite rich with symbols? In this interview, Burns briefly talks about symbolism:
So it’s as symbolic as it is anything else.
Yeah. In Black Hole, there’s not one symptom of the Teen Plague. It’s very unique for each character. So, you have Chris – who is one of the main characters – who is literally slipping out of her skin like a snake. You know, when you are at that age you are trying to reinvent yourself, and you are trying to slip out of your life, and transform into something else.
There are more interesting questions and answers in this interview. Check it out!
Moreover, I found a video on this comic book! It’s quite short (11minutes). Try watching it! Video
