Burton & Cyb appeared in the Spanish sci-fi comic magazine Zona 84 in the mid-80s and English language translations began to appear in Heavy Metal magazine in the US later in that decade.
Burton is a parody of the square-jawed All American action hero, while Cyb (short for 'cyborg') is a trigger-happy misanthrope. They are two of the universe’s biggest criminals and they have few reservations about fleecing gullible aliens. There is no crime too small and no plan too extravagant if it makes for a good haul. Arms dealing, various scams, bank robberies, convoluted time travel and an uncanny ability to get away with almost anything. Nothing is too much for these two crooks, not even testing the limits of their friendship by stabbing each other in the back if it allows them to get their hands on even more loot.
