Life in the Tunnels: Review of “Pitch Black”

Pitch Black

Youme Landowne; Anthony Horton

Pitch Black isn’t a particularly long graphic novel: only clocking in at roughly 40 pages. But its power comes from the messages that radiate out from the text. The poignant story reveals just a bit of what it’s like to be a homeless man in New York who chooses to live underground in the abandoned rooms of the subway. Anthony Horton recently died in an underground fire, which prompted me to find and read this work of his life. I don’t have too much to say on this novel, as I think it is one that should be read and understood individually.

Check Pitch Black out from your library. It won’t take more than an hour to read, and you’ll get something from it. I promise.

(I really shouldn’t be writing anything on a Friday evening.)
