Biographies of the Stars

Francois Boucq

François Boucq was born in Lille in 1955. He began drawing early and, without any formal training, was creating caricatures for magazines like "Le Point" and "L'Expansion" when he was still in his teens. He drew many comic strips but his reputation was made by the story "Les Pionniers de l'Aventure Humaine" (Pioneers of the Human Adventure), in 1984.

Boucq created many series for Casterman publications, often in collaboration with writer Jérôme Charyn: "La femme du magicien" (The Magician's Wife, 1986) , "Point de fuite pour les braves" (1986), "La pédagogie du trottoir" (1987), "Bouche du diable" (The Devil's Kiss, 1990) and in a 1992 collaboration with Alejandro Jodorowsky, the series "Face de Lune".

Boucq has won many prizes for his work in graphic design. In 1993, he created "Un point c'est tout", followed, in 1994, by "Les dents du recoin", the first album of the adventures of Jérôme Moucherot. In 1996, Boucq began a series of short stories about death, the first album called "La rage de vivre". This was followed in 1998 by "Sus à l'imprévu!" and "Péril pied-de-poule", two albums dedicated to Jérôme Moucherot. The fourth album of the series, "J'assure!" appeared in October 1999.

In 1998 François Boucq received Angoulême's 'Grand Prix de la bande dessinée', and the following year he presided over the Angoulême 'Band Dessinée' festival.
