Éric Adam

Éric Adam

Éric Adam has been a professional script-writer since 1994. He has produced dozens of scripts for corporate communication comic strips and has worked in collaboration on famous mass-market series such as Lucky Luke, Rantanplan and Le Marsupilami. His script of the Contes du Septième Souffle (Tales of the Seventh Breath) (4 volumes published between 2002 and 2006 by Vents d’Ouest) moves away from hackneyed intrigues and clichés to concentrate on a simple and powerful plot worthy of the great westerns or samurai films, whose central character is usually also a solitary warrior. Between 2008 and 2010, Éric published with Olivier Martin Les Carrés (The Squares) (publisher: Vents d’Ouest), a series on the world of art, a subject with which he is familiar as he studied art at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Brussells, then studied art history at the CNED and passed the competitive exam for the Ecole du Louvre. With the artist of the Contes du Septième Souffle, Hugues Micol, he began a new collaboration on the D’Artagnan series in 2008. He also collaborated with Didier Convard on the Sherlock series (two volumes in 2008 and 2009), on Petite Mort en un acte (Little Death in One Act) in 2009, and especially on the prequel to Neige: Fondation (Snow: Foundation) volume 1 of which was published in August 2010.

Didier Convard

Didier Convard

Born in 1950, Didier Convard began his career as a professional artist by creating several characters such as Isabelle Fantouri, produced as a four-hander with André Juillard. He created Cranach de Morganloup with Jean-Luc Vernal in “Tintin” in 1982. At Éditions Glenat, il succeeded François Bourgeon on Brunelle and Colin. He scripted and drew Les Heritiers du Soleil (The Heirs of the Sky) in “Vécu” and Chats (Cats) in “Circus”. He scripted Neige (Snow) for Christian Gine in “Tintin” and then for Glénat, Fripounet et Marisette for Gremet, Mathieu Lamy and Last again for Gine, and adapted Sherlock Holmes for Pierre Brochard. In 1995 he published Editnalta with Dargaud where he scripted Polka for Siro and Le Dernier Chapitre (The Last Chapter) for André Juillard. After returning to Glénat, he scripted Toussaint for François Dermaut. In 2000 he published the first volume of the celebrated esoteric series Le Triangle Secret, drawn by several artists. He proposed Finkel for Gine and Rogon Le Leu for Chabert, published by Delcourt. He continued the exploration of the mysteries of Le Triangle Secret with I.N.R.I., Hertz and then Les Gardiens du Sang (The Guardians of the Blood). He also wrote Le Protocole du Tueur (The Killer’s Protocol) for Denis Falque, the magnificent historical detective story Vinci, l’Ange brisé (Vinci, the Broken Angel) for Gilles Chaillet and Tanâtos for Jean-Yves Delitte, and launched a new series of adventures with deliciously retro charm for Jean-Christophe Thibert: Kaplan & Masson. In 2010, he revived his cult series Neige with the artists Didier Poli and Jean-Baptiste Hostache.

Éric Liberge

Éric Liberge

Born in 1965, Éric Liberge says that he drew from his earliest years. In 1977, he filled his drawing books with complete stories featuring little skeletons.
In 1996, he began his series dedicated to Monsieur Mardi-Gras Descendres. The magazines “PLG”, “Ogoun” and “Golem” were the first to publish some brief extracts. Completed in 1998, volume 1, Bienvenue ! (Welcome!) was publied by Zone créative. Winner of the Prix René Goscinny in 1999, the album was reprinted by Pointe Noire.
In 2002, after three albums, he put aside his flagship series and published Tonnerre Rampant (Raging Thunder) and then Métal with Soleil in their Latitudes collection. In 2004, Éditions Dupuis republished the first three volumes of Monsieur Mardi-Gras Descendres which were followed in 2005 by the release of the forth and fifth volumes.
Éric Liberge began in 2003 a collaboration on five volumes with Denis-Pierre Filippi, Les Corsaires d’Alcibiade (The Corsairs of Alcibiade), published by Dupuis, whose action takes place in 19th century England. In 2008, he released Aux heures Impaires (At odd Hours), an album exploring the Louvre museum, published by Futuropolis. His most recent project as complete author, Wotan, explores the violence of men during war and paints a series of crossed destinies during the Second World War. The first volume was published in August 2011 by Dupuis.
