Revue de presse

Patrick Lohier,
“The coloring is vivid and captivating, and Burns has written a deeply rewarding, albeit heart-wrenching conclusion.”

Présentation de l'éditeur

The long, strange trip that began in X'ed Out and continued in The Hive reaches its mind-bending, heartbreaking end, but not before Doug is forced to deal with the lie he's been telling himself since the beginning. In this concluding volume, nightmarish dreams evolve into an even more dreadful reality...

(With full-color illustrations throughout.)

Sad and haunting conclusion to the trilogy 18 septembre 2014
Par Matthew Snope - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A tragic and sad conclusion to the trilogy that began w/ X'ed Out and continued into The Hive. Burns is such a good artist, writer, and storyteller. This third book clearly shows what was going on in the first two books, and the result is rather haunting. Personally, I like Black Hole better, but I'm glad overall I read this trilogy, and I liked its mix of Burroughsian vaguely Arabic wasteland, punk culture, and compassionate contemporary tragedy. The main character is kind of an annoying emo wimp, but he's also complex and relatable. Wonderfully colored and the books are bound nicely. Highly recommended.

Great ending to a wild ride 17 septembre 2014
Par Steven Platt - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I had been looking forward to this for a while and it definitely lived up to my expectations. Anyone who has been following the series should know by now just what they are in for.
Burns does a great job at continuing the mood that he had set in the previous books, yet gives us an extra helping of the grotesque. I also felt this book had much more emotional pull to it, obviously due to the story winding down to its tragic ending. While the last two books swept us up in a whirlwind of ideas and images and nightmares all seemingly discombobulated, here Burns has masterfully brought all those concepts together. As we link the new images with the previous ones, timelines become present and the big picture becomes clear.
The inevitable demise of our anti-hero has more of a psychological weight to it than a physical one. I was happily surprised by the climax, it was a better ending than I anticipated and brought up some issues of morality now that we could see the true character of the protagonist.

Great wrap-up to trilogy! 23 septembre 2014
Par R. Jacobi - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
More greatness from Charles Burns. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hurl. Buy it.

You should read/revisit the first two books before reading this one. And when you're done with this one, you may just want to read all three again, because it's not clear exactly what's going on in much of the story, until you get to the end. Then, it makes sense. You'll realize who "the real Doug" is.

Unbelievably disappointing ending. 25 septembre 2014
Par X. Paloverde - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Spoiler Alert--Don't read if you don't want to know more about the ending!

Like the rest of the trilogy, it's great .... until the last two pages. The ending was stunningly weak. I"m just blown away by how ordinary and banal it was, and deeply disappointed. The completely ordinary revelation (of 'what really happened') was way too mild and unimportant to counterbalance the darkness and twisted imagery of the rest of the tale. It was totally unbelievable that our protagonist would have been so disturbed and filled with apparently life-changing guilt over what turns out to be an almost completely innocuous failure. I was so stunned by the banal ending I kept searching the back page, certain that it was a 'false' ending and that Burns had decided to continue the story in a fourth book. Apparently not. He really did, for whatever inexplicable reason, put an amazingly banal ending onto this incredibly dark trilogy. I'm so upset I feel like writing Charles Burns to complain. I don't think it's just me as three others I discussed this with felt exactly the same way. Still, it's worth buying, because it's wonderful--up to the end.

Sugar Skull 5 janvier 2015
Par TorridlyBoredShopper - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Charles Burns has always been two things to me. First, he has always been interesting, keeping me on the hook with writing that entertains and sometimes challenges, accenting sometimes-complicated storylines with amazingly stylized artwork and complex characterizations. Take Black Hole, arguably his best (and at least his most well-known) work, for example. In it, Burns takes a look at STDs and the awkwardness of being young, transforming what could be likened to a public safety announcement in many ways and making it into something tragically amazing. Second, Burns has always been less-than-prompt and always keeps you waiting - and waiting - and waiting. I recall when Black Hole was coming out in comic form and how some issues would be delayed for almost a year. This trilogy has been something like that, with dates being delayed and keeping readers on the hook for a long time.

So, was it worth it?
I resoundingly thought so.

With Sugar Skull and this story as a whole, I was not sure how things would turn out and ultimately did not know what I wanted to happen. I tried to avoid anyone talking about it because the other books left me actually looking forward to this, and I was glad I did because spoiler reviews seem to shortchange the experience. Throughout this series, Burns does a nice job making me feel sorry for someone I normally would not, transforming what was ultimately a Hipster's lifestyle into something interesting. He does it with little things like the photographs and his musical additions, through the more outlandish "dream" sequences, through snippets of a relationship, and by adding specific moods. I always liked that about Burns; he can take something minimal and make you examine it until you feel. I also liked that he took the main character and made things about him questionable - for the longest time I wanted to see him as a victim but life is much more complex than that. That is vague, too, I know, I just do not want to ruin anything.

If you have not read the first two books, do NOT read these out-of-order. They are smaller books you will complete quickly enough, books I was honestly surprised to see in hardback form, and ones I have returned to more than a few times. Even if you have them, reread the series before Sugar Skulls.

I am glad I read this. 5/5
