Julia von Kleist
The Breton artist Bruno Marivain started his career making advertising comics. He teamed up with scriptwriter Patrick Cothias to create his first series, resulting in the thriller 'La Mémoire des Ogres' in Glénat's Bulle Noire collection (1998-2002). He subsequently created the 'Barbara Wolf' detective series with François Maingoval for the same collection between 2003 and 2005.
The artist has since focused on more historical comics in cooperation with Jean-Baptiste Djian, such as the 'Julia von Kleist' trilogy (Emmanuel Proust Editions, 2009-2011), the adaptation of Théophile Gautier's 'Le Capitaine Fracasse' (Glénat, 2010) and the installments on Sword Beach and Juno Beach in the series 'Normandie juin 44' (Vagabondages, 2012-2013).
