    Charles Burns Love Nest (Nid d'amour) Original d'un dessin pleine page (Éditions Cornélius, 2016). Burns réinterprète l'imagerie des comics sentimentaux des années 1950 en y ajoutant des éléments effrayants dignes des comics publiés avant le Comics Code, comme cette image d'un inhumain en train de traquer sa proie. On y retrouve le Burns de Fleur de peau ou El Borbah une génération avant, mais avec une approche nouvelle et angoissante. Dessin au crayon et a` l'encre de Chine sur papier bristol avec une surface d'image d'environ 13 x 15,5 cm.
    Charles Burns Love Nest Splash Page Original Art (Cornelius Publishing, 2016). Burns' harrowing re-interpretation of the romance comics of the 1950s includes many creepy elements that would not have been tolerated even in the pre-Comics Code years. One such element is the matter of subhuman stalking, as pictured in the present selection. Consistent with Burns' Skin Deep and El Borbah style of a generation prior, but with a fresh and chilling approach. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area of approximately 6" x 5.25".
