From the creator of the hit graphic novel Black Hole comes this new softcover edition of another masterpiece of modern horror, BIG BABY. Big Baby is a particularly impressionable young boy named Tony Delmonte, who lives in a seemingly typical American suburb until he sneaks out of his room one night and becomes tangled in a horrific plot involving summer camp murders and backyard burials. Burn's clinical precision as an artist adds a sinister chill to his droll sense of humour, creating a brilliant narrative that perfectly captures the fear of adolescence.
The work of Charles Burns is a vision that's both horrifying and hilariously funny, and which he executes with cold, ruthless clarity... It's almost as if the artist... as if her weren't quite... human! --R. Crumb
