Cannonball Read IV

A bunch of Pajibans reading and reviewing and honoring AlabamaPink.

pyrajane’s review #15: Black Hole by Charles Burns

An inky black comic about an STD that makes you a mutant teen.  It’s not as cool as it sounds.  The STD part, not the comic.  The comic is as cool as it sounds.

And yes, I use the word “comic” instead of “graphic novel”. 

The story is really good and really freaky and I loved the artwork.  Read on for more, but beware swears and spoilers.  I find it’s hard to talk about a comic’s storyline without giving things away because the writing has to be super tight to fit within the medium.
