CHARLES BURNS grew up in Seattle in the 1970s. His work rose to prominence in Art Spiegelman’s Raw magazine in the mid-1980s and took off from there, for an extraordinary range of comics and projects, from Iggy Pop album covers to ads for Altoids. He’s illustrated covers for Time, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Magazine. He was also tapped as the official cover artist for The Believer magazine at its inception in 2003. His eagerly awaited graphic novel Black Hole, published in 2005, received over a dozen Harvey Awards. Burns, along with several other prominent graphic artists, collaborated on Fear(s) of the Dark, an animated French horror film now touring the US. Burns lives in Philadelphia with his wife and two daughters.
