In the run up to The Hive, why not go back in time to this Charles Burns interview about X’ed Out, the first in this mind-bending trilogy.
For more than 30 years, cartoonist Charles Burns has been creeping people out. First in the pages of Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly’s Raw, then through the exploits of characters like wrestler-detective El Borbah, then with Black Hole, a magnum opus that took a decade to complete, Burns has created unsettling landscapes filled with unrecognizable but oddly familiar life forms that might have crawled right out of his subconscious. He’s a prolific illustrator as well, his style familiar even to those who don’t know his comics. With X’ed Out, the first in a projected three-volume series, Burns is on familiar turf, exploring the neurotic netherworld of a protagonist whose consciousness flits between the real world and an unnamed dreamscape in which he appears as a Bizarro version of Tintin called Nitnit.
