Philippe Buchet was born in Juniville in the Ardens. He dropped out of school and began working as an illustrator in Paris, making drawings for local cafés and papers. He then became art director with an agency specialized in advertising and communication comics in Reims. It was there that he met comic artist Sylvain Savoïa and scriptwriter Jean-David Morvan, with whom he founded the atelier 510 TTC in 1994. The studios was also joined by artist Tranktat, and colorists Christian Lerolle and Franck Gureghian. Together with Savoïa and Morvan, he created 'Nomad', a French manga series published by Glénat. After two albums in 1994 and 1995, Buchet left the team and Savoïa continued the artwork on his own.
In 1998, Buchet and Morvan produced the humorous heroic-fantasy one-shot 'La Quête des Réponses', that was published in Dragon magazine and subsequently collected in book format in Delcourt's Humour de Rire collection. The team then started their best known creation, the science-fiction series 'Sillage'. Published by Delcourt since February 1998, it has become one of the publisher's hit series and it has won Buchet several prizes. Since 2004, Buchet additinoally serves as co-scriptwriter on the expansion of the 'Sillage' universe, by launching the spin-off series 'Nävis' (about the youth of the main character), drawn by José Luis Munuera, and 'Les Chroniques de Sillage', with artwork by various artists.
Buchet and Morvan were also responsible for the French 'Wolverine' comic 'Wolverine: Saudade' (Panini, 2006). Buchet drew the first installment in the collective comics project 'Jour J' by Jean-Pierre Pécau, Fred Duval and Fred Blanchard in 2010.
