A week or two ago I finished reading Black Hole by Charles Burns which is an oh so perfect graphic novel (originally a series of comics) which follows a group of high school students in the 70's who contract an STD that's going around which gives them strange physical mutations. I don't review every book I read, mostly because I can't be bothered, but this one I love so much that I want you all to know and all to read it. Well, only if it's your kind of thing. The artwork is slick & gorgeous and the story is brilliant. I actually really want to make it into a film, so Sarah OB, Jenny & anyone else, if you're free in the summer...? (btw I realise we say this every summer but y'know). Also click here to see a set of photos created inspired by the character artwork in the book.

  1. Loool we do say it every summer, but that just just shows our budding enthusiasm for the art that if film. I'm up for it, sounds like a well random book but im loving the unique plot line.
