Wilbur

Scriptwriter

Born on January 4th, 1960 in Saint-Claude, Guadeloupe, Sophie Commenge (also known as Wilbur) would probably never have started a career as a comics writer if she hadn't met Didier Conrad in 1982 in Marseille. After she obtained her Baccalauréat (French high school diploma) in literature, she undertook studies in political sciences and law at the University of Aix-en-Provence. Then, in 1984, she took part, under the name of Lucie, in the storyboards of the Bob Marone series (Glénat), a wacky parody of Bob Morane's adventures created by her partner and Yann. The following year, in 1985, she co-wrote L'Avatar (Bédéfil) under her real name, and one year later, a self-published volume titled Tatum: la Machine écarlate. In 1987 and 1991, amidst the birth of her two children she worked on the two-part series Le Piège Malais(Dupuis) and co-wrote five volumes of the series Donito (Dupuis) with her husband. In 1996, they family moved to the USA to bring their children up under the California sun. In 2001, she started the Raj series (Dargaud) with her husband, and in 2005, she assisted him in creating the script of the third and fourth volumes of Tigresse blanche (Dargaud).
