Born in 1976, Fabien Nury began his career by co-writing with Xavier Dorison the script of W.E.S.T (Dargaud; Spooks, Cinebook), a hit series illustrated by Christian Rossi (six volumes between 2003 and 2011). Nury independently wrote Je suis légion (2004-2007, Humanoïdes Associés), a trilogy illustrated by the American John Cassaday and translated into eight languages. In 2007 he also started working on Le maître de Benson Gate (Dargaud) with Renaud Garreta. From 2007 to 2012, Nury wrote the script for the six volumes of Il était une fois en France (Glénat). The historical series, illustrated by Sylvain Vallée, received wide critical and public acclaim (over 850,000 copies sold). Amongst other achievements, in 2011 he received an award for best international series at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. Since then Fabien Nury has been gaining success in various genres: the historical narrative La Mort de Staline (Dargaud; The Death of Stalin, Europe Comics), illustrated by Thierry Robin; the thriller Steve Rowland, volume 5 of the XIII Mystery series (Dargaud, illustrations by Richard Guérineau); the detective series Corey Silas (Glénat, illustrations by Pierre Alary); and the literary adaptation Atar Gull (Dargaud, Europe Comics in English), illustrated by Brüno. In 2013, Nury also created Tyler Cross with Brüno (Dargaud, Europe Comics in English), a noir graphic novel praised by both critics and readers. In 2014, Fabien Nury published the fourth and final volume of L'or et le sang (Glénat), co-scripted by Maurin Defrance and illustrated by Merwan and Fabien Bedouel. With Thierry Robin he then created the two-part series Mort au Tsar (Dargaud; Death to the Tsar, Europe Comics). In 2014, with Eric Henninot he also published Fils du soleil (Dargaud), an adventure album adapted from two novels by Jack London. And in the audiovisual realm, Fabien Nury co-wrote with Dorison the script for the feature film Les brigades du Tigre (directed by Jérôme Cornuau, 2006) and the TV movie Pour toi, j'ai tué (directed by Laurent Heynemann, 2012).
