But Dorison didn’t limit himself just to the world of comics. In 2006, the film “Les Brigades du Tigre” was released, an adaptation of the TV series of the same name, which Dorison again co-wrote with Nury. In 2007, he teamed up once more with Mathieu Lauffray for the “Long John Silver” adventure, which also met with huge success.
In 2008, publisher Dargaud called on Xavier Dorison to write the script of the first volume of “XIII Mystery,” a spin-off of the famous series “XIII.” The artwork was done by Ralph Meyer, and this would be the beginning of another prolific collaboration. The pair then went on to create the Viking epic “Asgard” (Dargaud). And in 2014, with Thomas Allart, Dorison produced “H.S.E.” (Dargaud; Europe Comics 2017), a tale of suspense about the possible downward spiral of an ultraliberal society.
As an author with a high output, Dorison tends to work on several comic book series at the same time, all the while continuing his work on TV and cinema scripts. Switching with ease between the aforementioned series, in addition to “Le Chant du Cygne” (2014, Le Lombard), “Red Skin” (2014, Glénat) and his latest and greatest success “Undertaker” (Dargaud 2015, Europe Comics 2016), he’s proved his ability to work with genres varying from adventure to westerns to historical drama, without ever losing the energy of the plot line and the structural solidity that characterize his work. It thus comes as no great surprise to know that he’s been entrusted with the continuation of one of the all-time biggest adventure series of Franco-Belgian comics, the legendary “Thorgal” (Le Lombard).
