Black Hole’s horrific elements combined with the metonymic capabilities of the comics format and Charles Burns’ unique drawing style allow Burns to portray the ecological in Black Hole without reducing it into anthropocentric metaphors. To further analyze Burns’s formal achievements, it is important to overlap metonymic theories of images and comics with ecocritical analyses of metonymy in prose literature. The uncanny, abject, and unquantifiable qualities of Black Hole’s metonymic juxtapositions serve to resist the one-way street of metaphor in which nature is reduced to symbols.
