Jean-Michel Nicollet took courses at the Art School, where he met Jacques Tardi. He made his debut in 1970, with a few illustrations for the magazine Lui. In 1977, for Métal Hurlant magazine, he made 'Ténébreuses Affaires', a series of short fantastic stories, in collaboration with writer Picaret. Specializing in illustration, he did numerous covers and has exhibitions of his paintings. His work, which is mainly done in acrylic, is characterized by a dark and unnerving style, showing a preference for themes of the supernatural.

Series and books by Jean-Michel Nicollet in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:
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.
