(b. 11/3/1967, France) Born in Versailles, Marc Bourgne studied history in Sorbonne, and graduated in 1989. A comics fan since his early childhood, he created the first albums of the series 'Être Libre' for Dargaud afterwards. For this series, he created the characters Andy and Flo, inspired by his fascination for North America and his own childhood memories. The series was reprinted by the publisher Théloma under the title 'Dernière Frontière'. In 1997, he was assigned by Dargaud to draw the album 'L'Histoire dde Monaco' in 1997. In 1999 he took over the artwork of the 'Barbe-Rouge' series, scripted by Christian Perissin and created originally by Victor Hubinon and Jean-Michel Charlier. A year later he came up with his own detective series, 'Frank Lincoln'. Marc Bourgne also works as an illustrator for Hachette and Fleurus, and in the advertising field.
