Straight for the ewww | Charles Burns’s <i>Black Hole</i> in the real world

Photographer Max Oppenheim and prosthetics artist Bill Turpin‘s recreations of the “yearbook photos” found in Charles Burns’s teen-sex-horror graphic novel Black Hole are spreading around the nerd Internet like the teen plague itself. You can find a couple at the Fantagraphics blog, and a couple more at Boing Boing, and a few more at io9, and the whole set at The Operators. Oppenheim and Turpin created the images for British magazine 125, but they’ll be on permanent display in my nightmares.
