Hervé Tanquerelle

Born in 1972, Nantes native Hervé Tanquerelle is a bright artistic talent of the current French comics scene. Right from his first book, The Ballad of the Little Hanged Man [L’Association, 1998], to his forthcoming work, a “spaghetti epic” from Dargaud (written by Appollo), he has not stopped experimenting with new approaches to art and storytelling. After collaborating with Hubert on the series The Alchemist’s Legacy, he took up drawing duties on Joann Sfar’s series Professor Bell (Delcourt). His style is one of constant transformation, in settings that range from lucha libre (with the children’s comic Cabeza Negra in Cosmic Capsule magazine) to reportage (The Commune, a diptych with his father-in-law Yann Benoît, from Futuropolis), from thrillers to literary adaptations (Jørn Riel’s Arctic Yarns series, with Gwen de Bonneval). Tanquerelle is the editor-in-chief of the new digital comics revue Professor CYCLOPS.
