François Thomas has published his work in the magazine Pilote since 1976, creating titles such as 'Contes d'une Autre Lune' (1976-1981) and 'Stan Caïman' (1982-1989). In 1981, his first album, 'La Cracheuse de Feu du Cirque Zaroff', appeared, followed a year later by 'Croco Dream'. In 1991, Thomas changed his style completely, coming up with the strip 'Bébé 1er'. Three years later, he picked up 'Stan Caïman' again, which was published in Penthouse, and his album 'Catherine Sévère' appeared at publisher Albin Michel. In 1998, at Dargaud, François Thomas started the series 'Riches et Célèbres' with 'Olof Beaulieu-Spehr ou le Choix de la Pureté'.
