Seattle-raised cartoonist Charles Burns has been described as as “one of the most talented and compelling cartoonists of his generation.” During his 30-plus year career, he has published his distinctively dark idiosyncratic comics in a variety of magazines and graphic novels, including his Harvey Award-winning series “Black Hole.” He has also illustrated covers for Time, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Sunday Magazine, and is the cover artist for The Believer. Now he releases his award-winning epic trilogy—”X’ed Out,” “The Hive,” and “Sugar Skull”—all in one volume. Taking inspiration from the classic Franco-Belgian Tintin series, the trilogy tells the story of Doug, a troubled young man on a long, strange, mind-bending trip. A Publisher’s Weekly review of Hive praises “Burns’s power to shine a light on the darker side of human nature” and says, “the result will stick with readers long after being absorbed.”
