Benjamin Legrand, born in 1950, traces his creative beginnings from the audiovisual arts (he was an assistant to renowned directors such as Demy, Rivette and Molinaro and worked in the advertising industry and on television) where he collaborated with Philippe Druillet on an animated film in the early 1980s. He began his career in comic book illustration in 1984 by signing the script for ‘Tueur de cafards’ for Tardia. Since then, he holds an important place in the magazine (À Suivre) and in 1987 he continues with the comic book ‘Requiem blanc’ drawn by Jean-Marc Rochette. A year later, again in collaboration with Rochette, he writes the script for two episodes of the series ‘L'Or & l'esprit’. At the very end of the 1990s, after the death of Jacques Lob, Legrand designed for Rochette the script for two additional ‘Snowpiercer’ volumes. Ten years later, he does the same with another of Lob's creations, ‘Delirius’, whose artwork is signed by Philippe Druillet. In addition to his contribution to comics, Benjamin Legrand is a novelist with twelve published titles, a translator of great Anglo-Saxon novels (Tom Wolfe, Robert Ludlum and John Grisham) and a screenwriter for film and television.
