SPX 2014 Panel - Charles Burns Q+A
Charles Burns is among the world's most distinguished cartoonists whose work first gained notice in the pages of RAW Magazine in the 1980s. His meticulously drawn early stories reflected upon and transformed the tropes of historical genre comics. Burns then spent ten years drawing his graphic novel masterpiece Black Hole, which dissolved literal horror into the true horror of everyday life. His latest work, Sugar Skull, which concludes the serialized narrative in his new trilogy of full color comics albums debuted at SPX 2014. Burns discusses his work in a spotlight session moderated by Alvin Buenaventura.
