Daniël Kox is a Belgian comic artist, best known for the series 'L'Agent 212', which he makes with Raoul Cauvin for Spirou since 1975. Born in Ottignies, in the Walloon part of Brabant, Kox developed an interest in comics and drawing. In 1967, he presented his work to Jidéhem, who gave him some tips and tricks.

Three years later, he assisted Dino Attanasio as a background artist and colorist on some 'Spaghetti' stories.
