French artist Joseph Falzon prepared his entry into the comics world by studying at the renowned Saint-Luc Institute in Brussels. There, he developed a lively and fluid drawing technique, which evolved with his projects. One of his first efforts, Jours de Cendre (2010, Sarbacane), is a silent narrative based on the idea of smoke invading a city, allowing Falzon to experiment with a more charcoaled graphic style. He then met Thomas Cadène during the creation of the bédénovella Les Autres Gens (Dupuis), for which he drew a few episodes. Since then, the two have continued their collaboration on other projects, including in 2018 the graphic novel sensation Alt-Life (Le Lombard; Europe Comics in English), a sci-fi/fantasy tale which has made a splash across the francophone press and beyond.
