as you probably know, the best comic strip artists come from france and belgium. some of the very well known masters are – UDERZO, FRANQUIN, LOISEL, BILAL, MOEBIUS, WASTERLAIN, MEZIERES, HERGE, ROBA and CONRAD. forgive me if I forgot too many, there are a lot!
there are even more in the younger generation I was not able to follow up as close as I wanted, because I don’t live in europe anymore. but one artist I would like to present, because I admire his work – FREDERIC BEZIAN. he was born 1960 close to toulouse in france and attended the famous comic strip academy in bruxelles. his comic albums came out with LES HUMANOIDES ASSOCIES. some of his very ‘dark’ titles are – ADAM SARLECH, LA CHAMBRE NUPTIALE and TESTAMENT SOUS LA NEIGE. maybe in a later post I will show some of these amazing pieces of art. here are a few images from a short black/white story published in a monthly comic magazine.
