Doug is still in the netherworld. He’s working a cleaning job in the Hive’s stinking hallways, trying to ignore the screams, and reading romance comics to the breeders. But as the stories unravel on the page, frame by frame, mirrored memories plunge him back into his waking life, and that’s where the real nightmare is. In Burns’s trademark hard-edged style, The Hive is horrifying and completely absorbing: an incredible new instalment from one of the most exciting artists in the comic book medium. The second part of the surreal, partly inverted-Tintin tale begun in X-ed Out.
