The last of the trilogy of weird graphic story books by Charles Burns which began with X'ed Out and continued with The Hive. I felt it a very satisfactory resolution to the story: I see I hoped after reading the second volume that the punchline would be something sufficiently disturbing to justify the emotional energy we have been asked to invest in the central character, and indeed it is. I was a little disappointed that the pltline involving the real-world characters reading comics slightly fell away, but we got plenty of both the real-world story and its parallel in the world of Doug's dreams/nightmares. I strongly recommend getting all three together; there's no need now to delay between each book!
