Michel Rouge

Rouge (1950) started his career in comics in 1977 after he had studied graphic art in Paris, completed an art course with comics artists Yves Got and Georges Pichard, and travelled across the Orient. He began by assisting André Chéret on ‘Rahan’, and in the same year he created his first comic in collaboration with scriptwriter Raymond Chiavarin. In 1978, he started his long-lasting collaboration with Rodolphe D. Jacquette, now one of the most highly acclaimed comics scriptwriters in France. During the 1980s, Rouge worked on a number of comics. In 1979, scriptwriter Michel Régnier-Greg invited him to take part in creating the popular western ‘Comanche’.
