Laurent-Frédéric Bollée was born in 1967 in Orléans, France. His first contract in the world of comics, at 21, was as co-writer with Christian Godard for Les 13 Transgressions (Vaisseau d’Argent). Following that, he created with Valdman a sci-fi one-shot called Spartakus: Fatal carnaval (Dargaud), worked with Al Coutelis for AD Grand-Rivière (Casterman), earned a dBD Award in 2011 for Un Long destin de sang (12bis) with Bedouel, and collaborated with Philippe Aymond for Apocalypse Mania (Dargaud). This gave Bollée and Aymond the opportunity to work with Jean Van Hamme, which opened the door for Bollée to write for the XIII Mystery series, taking on Billy Stockton (Dargaud; Europe Comics in English).
