Born in Brussels in 1978, Frédéric Genêt knew from a young age that he wanted to be a graphic artist. During his years studying comics at the Saint-Luc Institute, he developed a realistic and dynamic graphic style that served him well in his illustration work for advertising agencies and other institutions. In parallel, he also began to teach the art of making comics to groups of aspiring young artists, all while continuing to follow his own dreams on the side. His career as a comics artist began in 2002 as a colorist for Spirou magazine, and he soon graduated to full-length albums, working on the science-fiction series “Mygala” (published by Nucléa), alongside author Jean-François Di Giorgio, followed by the international success “Samurai” (Glénat), again with Di Giorgio. It was several years later that Genêt discovered the fantasy novel “Gagner la guerre,” by Jean-Philippe Jaworski, and decided to take the final step, writing and illustrating his own series. Given free rein, Genêt set to work, and saw the first volume of the series published in 2018 by Le Lombard.
