The long-awaited collection of Charles Burns’ decade-in-the-making 12-installment graphic novel, Black Hole is a creepy reinterpretation of the Reagan-era AIDS epidemic. Here, ’70s teens in Seattle channel angst into rampant sex, drugs, and murder — while spreading a terrifying STD that causes bodies to sprout new mouths where mouths shouldn’t be. Isolation and confusion aren’t the most novel takes on adolescent life, but you’ll be hard-pressed not to get sucked into this black-and-white teenage wasteland.
