Franck Bonnet, born 16 August 1964, is a French comic book artist. Originally from the city of Troyes, his drawings appeared in a number of fanzines, and in 1991 he was awarded the prize for best amateur cartoonist at the international comics festival in Grenoble. He then began studying drawing for civil engineering and joined an architectural firm, while continuing to regularly produce plates for Editions Dargaud.
It was in this context that he met Didier Van Cauwelaert, who got him to work on his film “Les Amies de ma femme”, before suggesting that he do the drawings for “Vanity Benz”, the first volume of which was published in 1995. The first album appeared in 1995, marking the beginning of a long bibliography that navigates among different styles, exploring everything from historical comics to heroic fantasy, as well as detective fiction .
Trained at the side of Jean-Yves Mitton and known for his distinctive use of areas shaded in black, Franck Bonnet remains above all committed to the idea of “storytelling”.
