Edvin Biuković (June 22, 1969 – December 5, 1999) was a Croatian comics artist. He made his debut in 1987 with the strip Dokaz, published in Croatian magazine Patak. He spent several more years working on comic projects in Croatia.
Biuković collaborated with fellow Croatian Darko Macan on the pages of German magazine Gespenster Geschichten. Most of those stories were later translated to Croatian (and published under the title Citati), as well as English (published in various issues of Caliber's Negative Burn).
His big break came in 1993 when Dark Horse published Devils and Deaths, his other collaboration with Darko Macan, in Grendel Tales. The pair were subsequently asked back to do a four-issue sequel, Devil's Choices. He was awarded the Russ Manning Best Newcomer Award in 1995.
In December 1999, he died suddenly of a brain tumor in his hometown Zagreb, two weeks after it was initially diagnosed. He was thirty years old.
