Gibert Bouchard made his debut at the publishing house Glénat with two albums of the series 'Chroniques de Saint-Cyprien' in 1981 and 1982. During the 1980s, Bouchard created several albums dealing with the history of regions and cities. In 1994, he self-published his first humorous album 'T'As Pas Cent Balles?'. The same year, he became a writer for the magazine Spirou, where one of his creations was the series 'Poules à Lier' with Pica.
Bouchard and Pica continued their collaboration with the series 'Croco et Fastefoude' (Casterman, 1999-2002) and 'Les Babyfoots' (Bamboo, 2002). Since 1999, he also works for the magazine Le Journal de Mickey, where he created the gag strip 'P'tit Déj'. He returned to writing and drawing comics about regional history for Glénat from 2000, when he created extensive series like 'L'Histoire de l'Isere en BD' and 'L'Histoire de Lyon en BD', as well as several one shots on the subject. Since 2009, he is also one of the artists of 'Les Voyages d'Alix' for Casterman.
