Charles Burns: The Hive
Listen to/Watch entire show:
In the trilogy that began with X'ed Out, Charles Burns' protagonist enters an alternate, nonlinear, and dismal world. Having just published the second volume of the series, The Hive (Pantheon), Burns reflects on the eerie spaces and dark themes that populate his graphic novels, as well as the nature of suspense that does not necessarily resolve into explanation.
