Returning to the surreal universe first experienced in 2010's [b:X'ed|7814774|X'ed Out|Charles Burns|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320509423s/7814774.jpg|10836913], Burns, creator of [b:Black Hole|38333|Black Hole|Charles Burns|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327895219s/38333.jpg|2283546] and famed contributor to the legendary anthology series Raw, expertly reveals more of Doug's intriguing story in The Hive. As with the previous, the beautifully disturbing, non-linear tale leaps effortlessly between the real and unreal. Though in this installment, the lines further blur as elements from the bizarrely apocalyptic reality and the "normal" collide. Inspired equally by the works of Hergé and William Burroughs, Burns once again provides one of the best graphic novels of the year. ( )

Nadat het eerste deel X’ed out me halsreikend deed uitkijken naar het tweede deel The Hive, doet het tweede deel me nu een beetje argwanend reiken naar het derde (en als ik het goed begrepen heb: laatste) deel, Sugar skull.

De wilde trip van X’ed out zet zich ongenadig voort – Kuifje is alom tegenwoordig (waarbij de ‘klare lijn’ op een prettige onprettige manier botst met de misbaksels en freaks), en – omdat we in het vakje ‘geflipt’ slechts een beperkt aantal voorgangers erkennen – ook Burroughs en Lynch liggen steeds op de loer -, maar op de achtergrond doemt bij mij de vrees op dat deze strips ‘slechts’ de hallucinatoire weergave zullen blijken van een break-up gone bad.

Op zich is daar niks mee. Er zijn vele strips, en ook boeken zonder prentjes, gewijd aan banalere zaken. Maar wanneer je zo zwaar fantastisch en krankzinnig aanzet als Burns dat in het eerste deel doet, dan is zo’n afglijden naar ‘de echte wereld’ – en naar het jongetje-meisje-verhaal dat het dreigt te worden/zijn – niet minder dan een anti-climax.

Veel hangt van het derde deel af – hoeveel Burns openlaat, hoeveel hij ineenschuift – … ( )

This is the second volume of what I believe is intended to be a trilogy of short graphic novels. What I wrote about the first installment remains true of this one as well:

"A short graphic novel, the first installment of a trilogy. One cannot fully judge the merits of this volume when the other two come out. In many places, it is an elliptical, dreamlike tease. If the future volumes do more to tie all of this together, then this might be the beginning of a brilliant graphic novel. If not, then I would be somewhat disappointed."

This novel brings somewhat more depth to the characters relationships, somewhat more perspective on the alien world he ends up in, and another cliffhanger ending--that is just enough to keep me waiting another two years, which was the length of time between installments 1 and 2 in this novel. ( )

'The hive' is part 2 of the 'X'ed out' series by Charles Burns and if you wanted the same level of WEIRD! as the first installment, then you've got it. Burns is a genius. Reading his books is like having a dream... none of the parts seem to fit together, yet a story is definitely being told. And once you are finished reading, it is really hard to remember what actually happened. ( )

This is the second of a trilogy by Burns which started with X'ed Out, and leaps between three different storylines: Doug's memories of his life in our world, in particular his enigmatic girlfriend Sarah (who has a fascination with Louise Bourgeois); the adventures of Doug's alter ego Nitnit in the alternative insectoid world of The Hive; and the romance comics which are common to both worlds. It seems almost as if Burns is interrogating the medium of comics from two different directions, Bourgeois' startling and disturbing images and the conventionally fluffy romance stories. There is also clearly a deep revelation to come in the third and final volume about what happened between Douglas and Sarah, and I find myself rather hoping that it is something sufficiently disturbing to justify the emotional energy of the story rather than some relatively generic story about growing up.
