John M. Burns
John M. Burns is not at all well-known, and strolling down the booths of Dutch comic-conventions, one can occasionally find his 'Trueno' comic book-series; boring! But some 8 years ago at a large book sale in Utrecht, I stumbled on a 'Judge Dredd' comic book with a horrible cover. Inside I discovered what was the most refreshing drawing style I'd seen in a long time! The little story titled 'Raider' is beautifully illustrated in a style reminiscent of the 1960's magazine illustrations of Bernie Fuchs or Bob Peak. Very inspiring!
