    1. I like unique things. This is unique.It's a thin, long, hardcover book, so it looks a bit like a picture book. Sometimes it has panels, sometimes one illustration takes up a full two-page spread. It's autobiographical, and issue-based. I was impressed with the vulnerability and openness of the narrator. And illustrations are stunning - the black and white only adds to it. I've always lived in the same house. So one of my fantasies, growing up, was what it would be like to live somewhere else. In [...]

    2. Oscar Wilde says, "The critic is he who can translate into another manner or new material his impression of beautiful things."Pitch Black didn't really move me, and because of that I almost gave it a really bad review. They're easier to write, and lets face it, everyone loves a good bad review.But I didn't want to haphazardly jot off some cursory thoughts based on a book I hadn't really given much thought to. So, I stopped and thought about it a little bit. (It may have helped that I'm re-readin [...]

    3. This has got to be the shortest graphic novel that is out there. I only gave it 4 stars, because the story just seemed incomplete to me. I got to see how he came to be living in a tunnel under the city, but the book never explained how he and others were rescued from living down there. Great graphics, but for the retail value I feel there should be more.

    4. Based on the true story of Youme Landowne and Anthony Horton's uncanny friendship, Pitch Black tells the story of how Landowne, a Brooklyn-based artist, meets Horton, street artist and member of the underground community known as the "mole people", on the platform of a subway stop one day. Both admiring the same piece of art, Horton asked Landowne if she was an artist. "Isn't everyone?" she replied. From there the two struck up conversation and spent an entire afternoon riding the train, uptown [...]

    5. Just cause you can’t see. Don’t mean ain’t nothing there. People always looking but they are just see the thing they want, they forget something is important, the road the happen to the city is maybe same like everyday, people habit all of these, so they won’t the look for the new thing. This is a short story but it has a very deep meaning.

    6. Graphic novel set almost entirely underground. This is a collaboration between children's author/illustrator Landowne, and Anthony Horton, who was homeless when they met on the subway. Black and white sketches bring beauty, but do not soft-pedal the harsh realities of Horton's life among the people and rats who take shelter in New York's subway tunnels.Like other books from Cinco Puntos Press, this is a direct and compassionate story: simply told, with subject matter beyond the range of what mos [...]

    7. As a collaboration between two artists, one homeless, "Pitch Black," packs a lot of power and impact in a short, concise work. It reflects the diverse, multicultural environment of New York City above ground and the world of those forgotten by society below it, in spite (or because) of being rendered in black and white. "Pitch Black" explores ideas of artistic expression, "home," and meaning, does not present either an idealized or a stigmatized view of the homeless. In fact, the comic opens up [...]

    8. This unique graphic novel with its long pages and black and white sketching and drawing is a blend of hard urban and creative art with the pain and issues of the homeless, those that co-exist in their hussle-bussle lives moving in and out of the subways without thinking twice, and the artists whose imagination is like breathing. Highly recommended in the first-person narrative of living below ground in the tunnels of the subway, the friends and family you meet along the way, and the life of a st [...]

    9. "Pitch Black" is the moving true story of how author and artist Youme Landowne met co-author/co-artist Anthony Horton. Youme meets Anthony one day as she is taking the subway in New York. They start to chat and end up talking about life and art for hours. Anthony is homeless, has been since he was a teen, and lives in the subway tunnels. He tells Youme his life story, shows her the tunnels that he has lived in, and the art that he creates while down there. The text is meager but concise, and the [...]

    10. A book that slightly parallels how one modern African American lives below the ground in secrecy much like slaves who gained their freedom by way of the Underground Railroad. The book's illustrations are wet and often atmospherically appropriate for the subject matter, but this style is not so appealing to me. I felt as though the book was simply a vignette rather than a complete thought. The story has endless possibilities but an abrupt ending.

    11. This is the kind of book that's hard to give a review on because it's based on a true story. Pitch Black is a short graphic novel about two artists' chance meeting on a subway platform. It's the story of the homeless man who illustrated the book (Anthony Horton), and what his life was like. The illustrations are unique--rough but still detailed. I think it's worth a read.

    12. I loved this book. I was a huge fan of the film Dark Days when it first came out, and this is another great first-person story from the tunnels. Just beautiful.

    14. I wasn't expecting a short book like this one to pack such a punch. In fact I went into it knowing nothing and expecting nothing but "something different".Well, the part of me that cares deeply about social justice got hit (in a good way). From the spreads with no words, to the ones with dialogue bubbles, everything gave me pause, made my heart weep and then left me pondering. This book took me to so many places, I'm surprised it's such an under the radar book.I know I'm going to keep it around [...]

    15. “Just cause you can’t see / don’t mean aint nothing there.” Underground subway as the short story setting for a first-personal narrative in black and white. Shades of grey and “scavengers of stories.”Tunnel vision of “memories and dreams” and “evidence of resistance to oppression and despair.”

    16. A woman is standing on a busy subway platform when she is approached by a man, they discuss graffiti that she is looking at. He asks her if she is she is an artist and she confirms. They ride the subway together and this man, Anthony, tells her about his life. He was given up for adoption at a young age. He was never wanted and ended up on the streets as a teenager. The city sent him to live in a shelter.Anthony said that the shelter was worse than living on the streets. To avoid the drug addict [...]

Although “Yummy” is focused more on gang life “Pitch Black” tells the story of a homeless man living under the subway in New York.Audience I would suggest this book to any study who enjoyed reading the graphic novel “Yummy”. Students interested in comics or graphic art would also like this bookL ART6.24 The student will explain orally and in writing the me [...]

    18. I first learned about Anthony Horton when he died in a fire in his underground home in a subway tunnel in New York City.  Mr. Horton was given away by his birth parents and then spent years in the foster care system. He was involved with the criminal justice system and lived in homeless shelters.  He found the shelters to be dangerous and undesirable places.  While running from the transit police, he accidentally found the underground subway tunnel community that exists in New York, as well a [...]

They have used both stunning illustrations and dialogue to tell the story of Anthony who lives in the underground subway tunnels of New York. Youme meets him on a subway ride and they connect over art and thats [...]

    20. This novel is about homelessness, an issue that is often overlooked in our society but is real and not minor. It is from an aspect that most people would not expect. Rather than a complaint or how homelessness sucks, this novel shows what the author actually appreciates about it. Who knew the subway tunnels of New York held more than just rats?As a reader, I followed the story well. For such short text there is a lot of depth but I enjoyed that. I read this book about three times just to discove [...]

    21. This is a very interesting graphic novel, that is part biography part social commentary. I found the format of the graphic novel, long and skinny, created a tunnel like canvas for the art, and Horton often kept the art to glimpses, such as a rider on the subway would have of the passing stations and faces. Like most things in life greater understanding is found the longer one studies something, in this graphic novel readers could miss a lot if they don't examine the backgrounds, which are full o [...]

    22. I picked up this wonderful book after my boyfriend recommended it and wow, I am so glad I did. Homelessness is quickly becoming the next "cause of the month," and it's great that attention is being drawn to it - but not every homeless person has the same story, ergo the solutions for homelessness must be varied and complex. This is a very different story about homelessness than what you often hear on the news, both in its resilience and it's total abandonment by society. There is nothing the man [...]

    23. Pitch Black is different than any graphic novel I've ever read. The story is quite simple: one day a woman artist starts up a conversation with a man she meets in the subway. He then begins to tell her his life story, in all its pain, loss, poverty, and violence. Abandoned at birth, shuffled through foster homes, and finally dumped in a homeless shelter, the man was illiterate, uneducated, and had no future. One day when being chased by the cops for sleeping he discovers his way down into the tu [...]

    24. Pitch Black is a graphic novel written by the two main characters in the book, Youme Landowne and Anthony Horton. The book recounts how two unlikely friends meet. Anthony is an African American young man who lives underneath the subway system in New York city, while Youme is an educated white female. They meet in the subway station and quickly learn they are both artists. They begin to share with one another their feelings about art and life. Anthony eventually takes Youme underneath the subway [...]

    25. Anthony Horton and Youme Landowne meet on a subway platform in New York. Both are artists, though Horton is a homeless artist living in the subway tunnels. The two hit it off and eventually collaborate on a book. The story is powerful and stark, Horton telling how he was born to people who didn't want him, and navigated a childhood on the streets, unable to read or write. The detailed black and white artwork perfectly depicts the chaos and danger of life underground. The story doesn't have a tra [...]

    26. The illustrations were breathtaking and the story was powerful, but there wasn't quite enough arc or movement for me to enjoy this story as much as I wanted to.That said, it's a 4-star concept: two artists from very different backgrounds meet on the subway, one of whom is a man who lives underground in the subway tunnels and has a tragic past. The graphic novel focuses on his story, and is told by the two of them. I love the magical concept and want to look at the carefully detailed illustration [...]

    27. The genre of this book is graphic novel.It was different because it was more like a comic.The book is about a man who is homeless and lives behind the subway. He tells his story and he went threw hard times to an artist he meets on the train. He finds out there is a whole world below the subway.I liked how the man told his whole story and you could see it.I think they should add what happened to the man, where he is today and if he ever saw the girl again.I would give this book 3 ½ stars. I wou [...]

    28. It was really hard for me to deciede whether to give this a 4 or 5 star review and I may keep changing my mind. Overall this is a great book and one that I think Teens will enjoy and Adults. It is the life of a man who ends up living in the subway tunnels. It is a hard story about a hard life but there is something about the way it is written that does not leave you feeling hopeless. I would give this to a Teen who has read Money Hungry by Sharon Flake. Or someone who is interested in the strugg [...]
