Comment

Love Nest, recueil d'images dessinées durant l'hiver 2015-2016. Comme le dit Charles Burns, "Derrière chaque dessin, il y a une image préexistante. Au niveau des sources, c’est un mélange entre des photographies et des couvertures de comics".

La jolie brune à la frange bien taillée représentée dans ce dessin fait indéniablement penser à une héroïne d'Alex Raymond. Ce n'est pas une coïncidence puisque la source utilisée par Burns est un strip de Rip Kirby daté du 2 mai 1947 et dont la 4éme case représente la troublante Pagan Lee aussi connue sous le nom de Madelon.

Alors, hommage ou plagiat ?

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
