Charles Burns is an American comic artist, known for his otherworldly horror comics. His instantly recognizable drawings combine crisp, highly stylized linework with dark, disturbing imagery. Burns’ visual power is matched by his strong storytelling abilities. Although he acknowledges his fascination for "weird stuff", his stories still are among the most captivating and intriguing graphic novels ever created. His works are veritable page-turners with plot lines that reveal deeper, psychological themes upon re-reading. Stories like 'Dog Boy' (1981), 'Teen Plague' (1989), 'Skin Deep' (1992) and his magnum opus 'Black Hole' (1994-2005) delve deep in teenage angst about body transformations and sexually transmitted diseases. Despite the psychological and sometimes semi-autobiographical nature of his work, Burns still likes to throw in some black comedy occasionally. And while the haunting element is never far away, not all of his comics can be categorized as horror. Besides stand-alone stories, he also created the long-running series 'Big Baby' (1982), 'El Borbah' (1983), 'Black Hole' (1994-2005) and 'X'ed Out' (2010-2012).
