Didier Conrad’s birthday
Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Didier Conrad (born 6 May 1959, France) was born in Marseille into a family of Swiss origins. At the age of 14, published his first comic in the “Carte Blanche” section of Spirou magazine in 1973. Five years later, he drew the fantastic series ‘Jason’ with scripts by Jean-Claude Smit le Bénédicte (Mythic) for this same magazine. Around that time, he began a longtime collaboration with Yann, also a young artist/writer from Marseille. The two rebellious artists filled the tops of the pages of Spirou magazine with their satirical drawings, in which they ridiculed the classic series of the magazine (collected in the small book ‘8 Mois dans l’Enfer des Hauts de Pages’), and they also made the poetic story ‘Bébert le Cancrelat’.
