Ulli Bürer (Jean Ullrich Bürer) was a Dutch The Hague-based illustrator, originally from Heerlen. He drew short comics for the comic magazines Titanic and De Toestand in the 1980s. Between 1993 and 1997 he was present in Incognito with the long story 'Six Inch Stiletto's', with a main character inspired by 50's pin-up Betty Page.

Although his comic 'Six Inch Stiletto's' remained unfinished, Bürer returned to comics in 2006 with contributions to MYX and erotic stories for Penthouse Comix. A sci-fi comic called 'Darius' remains unfinished, as well as his project with Sytse S. Algera about the war in Afghanistan for Eppo, and his solo comic 'Champions of Crynn'. He passed away in January 2015 at the age of 49.
