Since 2000, cartoonist Charles Burns (Black Hole) has been self-publishing a secret sketchbook zine that he gives out to friends and VIPs — dubbed “Free Shit.” Burns has now compiled all twenty-five issues into a single volume for all of his fans to enjoy. Featuring finished drawings, rough sketches, process pieces, and more, the book is a window into the artist’s id as well as a revealing behind-the-scenes look at the evolution of his grotesque and engrossing characters and motifs.

Any new Charles Burns book is cause for celebration and Free S**t is no exception. It’s the perfect holiday gift for fans of one of comics’ most acclaimed visionaries.
