Eddy Coubeaux (Eco) was born in Mons in 1969. After his art studies (Decoration, Serigraphy), he self-published his own photocopied fanzine, called Hurk! in 1993. In 1994 he co-founded the Brain Produk publishing house, which braught forth Kollectiv magazine. From that same year, Eco contributed work to several periodicals and fanzines, like Le Phacochère, Ogoun, Rêve-en-Bulles, PLG and Kocliko. He created the black and white silent comic 'Love Story' for the publishing house Paquet in 2001, which was followed by the 'Tommy Egg' trilogy, about a young adventurer in search of his marine uncle, for the same publisher between 2002 and 2004.
In 2005 he published the surrealistic silent comic 'Fireplug kung fu' at La Boite à Bulles, and then began an association with Éditions Carabas for the books 'Pad' (script Gary McGlone, 2005),, 'Dragone' (art by Rod, 2006) and 'Super Croco' (2007). By 2005, Eco headed to Vietnam, where he has produced five books of the science-fiction series 'Sieu Nhan Do' for the Vietnamese publishing house Nha Xuat Ban Tre, as well as illustrations for the magazines Lang Cuoi, Tuoi Tre Cuoi and Thanh Dat. At Les Enfants Rouges, he made the historical comic 'Waterloo' (2008) with Patrick Pirlot, and the autobiographical 'Yêu Yêu Saïgon' (2009), about his life in Vietnam.
