Mauvais Garçons by Benjamin Flao
Mauvais Garçons

Benjamin Flao was born in Nantes and lives and works in the department Morbihan. He quit his traditional school education at the age of 14 and enrolled in the Saint-Luc School of Graphic Arts in Tournai, Belgium. Two years later, he attended the School of Advertising Arts in Nantes. It was at the Emile Cohl art school in Lyon that he met Shayan, with whom he embarked several joint projects, including street caricatures.

Flao published his first travelogue in 2002, called 'Carnet de Sibérie (Mammuthus expéditions)', with Bernard Buigues. He then participated in 'Sillages d'Afrique', a collective project of travelling writers, by Gallimard in 2003. He worked with scriptwriter Christophe Dabitch on the graphic novel 'La Ligne de Fuite' (Futuropolis, 2007) and the diptych 'Mauvais Garçons' (Futuropolis, 2009). He has since contributed to anthologies like 'Projet Bermuda' (Librairie Expérience, 2007-2009), 'Bob Dylan Revisited' (2008), 'Immigrants' (BD Boum, 2010) and 'Rock'n'n Roll Antediluvien' (BD Music).

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
