Yves Sente was born in Brussels in 1964. When he was little, he read “La Marque Jaune,” Jacobs’ masterpiece, over and over again. Little did he know at that age that “The Adventures of Blake and Mortimer” would determine his destiny…! In 1998, while he was working for Le Lombard, he collaborated with artist André Juillard on the script of “La machination Voronov,” a new episode of the “Blake and Mortimer” series, a Cold War story acclaimed by critics and the public. Yves Sente then went on to write “Les Sarcophages du 6e continent,” where he reveals the young life of Professor Mortimer. He confirmed his writing talents with “La Vengeance du Comte Skarbek” (Dargaud) and then “Thorgal” (Le Lombard) alongside Rosinski. He then began the series “Le Janitor” (Dargaud; “The Keeper,” Europe Comics in English) with François Boucq in 2007, before going back once again to “Blake and Mortimer” in the “Le Sanctuaire du Gondwana,” in the heart of Africa. In 2011, he started on yet another project: the adventures of “XIII” with Iouri Jigounov. In 2012, Yves Sente brought “Blake and Mortimer” to England for “Le Serment des cinq Lords” and later “Le Baton de Plutarque.” His most recent projects include the transatlantic adventure “Il s’appelait Ptirou” (Dupuis, 2017; “His Name Was Ptirou,” Europe Comics 2018), which recounts the origins of the character Spirou, and the spectacular graphic novel “Cinq branches de coton noir” (Dupuis, 2018; “Black Cotton Star,” Europe Comics), an historical war drama.
