If you've never read his comics, I strongly suggest you do so, especially Black Hole, one of the most remarkable allegories of teenaged angst and fear ever published. His latest open-ended project, X'ed Out, is a beautiful melange of Tintin and... well, I'm not sure. William Burroughs? It's a stunning work, more abstract than Black Hole but as captivating as Dick Tracy at its most grotesque.
Over the years, Burns' skill as a draftsman just gets better and better. He eschews shading, preferring flat colors and crisp blacks and whites. There are rarely (if ever) any halftones in his work; all shading is accomplished with a skilfully brushed, comb-like "feathering" technique which makes other cartoonists blanch (I recall Mary Fleener openly admitting her jealousy to me, saying something like, "I don't know how he does it. It's like he's not human.").
