Last Look - Charles Burns
Finally published as a complete whole, Last Look, is the completed opus by Charles Burns (originally published as the trilogy, X'd Out, The Hive, and Sugar Skull) and well worth picking up in this final bound volume. Follow Doug as he navigates the complexities of his past in dreams and in fragments of memories. His drug filled, art obsessed self, finds love only to have it slowly fall apart. But why? That's what this fantastical, nightmarish, pseudo-Freudian dream landscape is all about. Heartbreaking, expertly crafted, brilliantly paced, Last Look earns its place among some of the finest in comics craftsmanship of the last few years.
