It's hopefully deeply horrific for readers and will stay with them once they've put it down, but it's also a nostalgic look back at ‘70s horror tropes—not to mention it's nostalgic for me, as I got my start with short twist-ending horror stories in the UK.

A restaurant based on the DC comic book universe is slated to open in the heart of London. Mash Steakhouse, at 77 Brewer Street, will be redeveloped into a restaurant “rooted within the DC Multiverse,” if planning documents submitted to the Soho Society are approved.
A design and access statement says:
The proposed design continues the use of the space as a high-end restaurant. The restaurant will be rooted within the DC Multiverse, taking visitors on a culinary adventure through the many fictional Universes famous for their superhero residents such as Batman, Superman and Wonderwoman ... it has the intention to invite guests to experience the DC Universe without breaking the fourth wall- the imaginary wall that separates the audience from the performance.
The main dining room will be divided into five spaces: “ a lounge Bar (Pennyworth’s) and a dining area with entertainment- reminiscent of the 1930s era (Iceberg Lounge). The North Nave - a fine dining experience (Dichotomy Fine Dining) and the South Nave (an Immersive Dining Experience). It will be known, collectively, as DC World, with Arkham — the fictional psychiatric hospital most prominent in Batman stories — to the back of the building. Overall, the restaurant will fit 317 covers.
"Black Hole is about a disease that affects teenagers, and about the lives of those particular characters. In some way, the other elements are incidental. I mean, of course it plays an important role, but it’s not just about, you know, an STD that deforms teenagers. That’s not what the story is about. The story is about characters who are struggling with their adolescence and finding their way through that portion of their life." -- Charles Burns

It'd got him, after he thought he'd left it in the past, attacked by the monster Rex-O.
Avi didn't want any part of it - he only wanted the life he had right now.
So he left the others from his past and went back to his present.
Unfortunately, what he was stood out to a lot of people.
Heading to work one day, he was punched in the face.
" That was a warning shot.
" Stay out of our school, psiot.
" We don't need the trouble you bring. "
( He got to his feet. )
