Cartoonist and illustrator Charles Burns is the creator of the much-lauded "Black Hole" series, the tale of a mysterious teenage plague that was named one of the "Top 100 English-Language Comics of the Century" by Comics Journal. His early work could be found in Art Spiegelman's "RAW" magazine and the SubPop fanzine. He has since gone on to illustrate for albums, magazines and Madison Avenue. We talk with Charles Burns about his latest work, "The Hive," second in a new trilogy that began in 2010 with "X'ed Out."
