About Charles Burns

Charles Burns is one of the most notorious authors of horror comics. His instantly recognizable drawings combine crisp, highly stylized linework with dark, disturbing imagery. Apart from his visual power, Burns is also a masterful storyteller. While he acknowledges his fascination for "weird stuff", his stories still rank among the most captivating and intrigueing graphic novels ever created. His works are veritable page-turners with plot lines that reveal deeper, psychological themes upon re-reading. Burns was born in 1955 in Washington D.C. The family moved around a lot, before settling in Seattle around 1965. One of Burns' earliest influences was Hergé, whose 'Tintin' stories he gazed upon before he could actually read. His father had bought some of the earliest U.S. translations, while the series was still largely unknown in the rest of the United States. Both the memorable imagery as well as Hergé's "Ligne Claire" ("Clear Line") had a deep impact on Burns' own comics. Text (c) Lambiek

Roniz Toujours très efficace les portraits de Charles Burns, sa technique est très expressive. Notamment avec les hachures au niveau du contour des visages...

pajan Très bon choix, j'avais trouvé l'expo assez inégal mais les quelques portraits de jeunes filles ou de femmes sont très réussis.
