Last look by Charles Burns( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of Doug, who as we meet him drifts in and out of reality and a hallucinatory fever dream that recalls the cleanly delineated world of Hergé combined with the horrific visions of William Burroughs and David Lynch. As the story opens he is recovering from a devastating trauma and trying to piece together how it happened. It is also the story of Doug's memory of his infatuation with Sarah, a brilliant but troubled art student who seems to be in mortal fear of something--or someone--lurking just around the corner. Or worse, literally downstairs and ringing the buzzer. Ultimately, Doug has to decide whether he is going to own up to his mistakes and confront his past, or choose to live it again, and again, and again

"Les enfants ont peur du noir, mais beaucoup d'adultes aussi ! L'obscurité empêche de voir, on peut alors se convaincre de la présence de bêtes, d'insectes ou de tous êtres malveillants. Dans le langage populaire, on a des idées noires, on vit dans une misère noire ou encore nous avons de noirs pressentiments... Cette sensation d'inquiétude rattachée au noir remonte à la nuit des temps. Blutch, Charles Burns, Marie Caillou, Pierre di Sciullo, Jerry Kramsky, Lorenzo Mattotti, Richard McGuire, Michel Pirus et Romain Slocombe, remontant le fil de leurs terreurs, ont accepté d'animer leurs dessins et de leur insuffler avec leur style unique le rythme de leurs cauchemars."
