Black Eye No. 3 is a departure from the previous two volumes in the series. Gone are the essays, the short fiction, the fake advertisements and the proliferation of gag panels. The focus here is on the comics form. This newest volume includes ten longer form sequential narratives, from four to ten pages in length, and a number of single page strips. The majority of the material was created specifically for this book and there are stories translated into English for the first time. Black Eye No. 3 continues a deep concern with all things dark and absurd, but builds from the premise that once you receive your third black eye, you will achieve a shameful enlightenment.
