Back in France, Hamon strung together a number of jobs in the movies, video games, and television. In parallel, he began to write his first comic book and graphic novel scripts.
In 2008, Hamon went to Angouleme to present his first completed scripts, and it was there that he met artist Marc Van Straceele. The two would go on to collaborate on “Yokozuna,” a graphic novel on sumo wrestling in Japan (Kana, 2013).
Following that, Hamon worked with artist Antoine Carrion on “Nils,” a saga halfway between Nordic mythology and the works of Miyazaki (Soleil, 2016). He then followed with “Emma & Capucine,” a series for younger readers centered on the worlds of classical dance and hip-hop (Dargaud 2017, Europe Comics in English 2018), and “Mitsuo,” alongside Cédric Babouche (Le Lombard, 2018).
