Les Chroniques Provinciales, by Michel Duveaux

After getting his education at the Beaux-Arts in Lyon, Michel Duveaux went to Brussels in 1974 to follow courses in comics in Claude Renard's atelier at the Institut Saint-Luc. He published his first two stories in Curiosity Magazine, and upon leaving the school in 1977, he made some "Cartes Blanches" for Spirou magazine and some short stories in Tintin. He had a brief appearance in L'Écho des Savanes in 1978, and in that same year, he created 'Les Chroniques Provinciales' in Fluide Glacial.

In 1978, Duveaux made 'Pierrot le Fou' in Circus. In that same magazine, he then also continued 'Les Chroniques Provinciales'. In addition, he cooperated with Pilote, Libération and À Suivre. In 1984, he made 'Beyrouth', a long story about the hostilities in the Middle-East, in Libération. In the following years, his work appeared in Ice Crim's and Métal Aventure. For the latter, he created 'Messaline'. A new version of this story was published in L'Écho des Savanes under the title 'Les Fêtes du Palatin'. In 1987, he produced the police story 'Fugue' with writer Alain Demouzon.

Duveaux focused on erotic comics from 1988, and created 'Le Vice d'Omphale' in Bédé X. Michel Duveaux is also active in the film industry, having made his first large film, 'Berthe de Joux', in 1991.

He was one of several artists to make a graphic contribution to ‘Pepperland’ (1980), a collective comic book tribute to the store Pepperland, to celebrate its 10th anniversary at the time.
