Author: Bengal

Bengal is a French comics creator. Born in 1976 in the Rhône-Alpes region of France, he currently lives and works in Reims, in the Champagne-Ardenne region.

Bengal credits his father for introducing him to comics at a young age, with such classic Franco-Belgian titles as Les Tuniques Bleues (The Blue Tunics), Jérémiah, and The Scrameustache . A fan of both French bandes dessinées and Japanese mangas, his appreciation for these diverse styles is evident in his own work.

Before becoming a writer and illustrator of comics, he worked for four years at the video game developer Darkworks. Bengal’s first solo effort is the manga-inspired High Fantasy Luminae: La dame perdue (The Lost Lady), the first book in what is planned as an ongoing series, was published in 2011.

While much of his work has been published only in France, Bengal’s short story Formidable was included in the first volume of the comics anthology Flight, published in 2004 by Image Comics in the United States.
