After earning a degree in Roman archeology, Christian Goux devoted himself to creating comics. He started out in the magazines Haga and Submarine. Together with Claude François, he subsequently launched the review Podium. In Haga, he drew his first comics, 'Paul et Léon' and two erotic stories. In 1979, he joined Tintin magazine with 'Saucisson Smith', the continuation of a series previsously published in two albums by Éditions Garnier in 1976. Afterwards, he became chief editor of the French version of Tintin. He set up sections like Tintin Story and Les Archives de Moulinsart, two sections about the work of Hergé. For Tintin, he also scripted 'Harry Plaxon', a series of strips drawn by François Dimberton.
After additional appearances in magazines Spirou ('Claquenouille'), Les Visiteurs du Mercredi ('Sibor et Bora'), Lili-Aggie ('Fairizette et Grobizou') and Pistil ('Croque-Béton'), Goux created the funny animal series 'Manivelle et le Camélécamion' for Pif in 1979. He then contributed to Mikado and eventually joined the publishing house Fleurus. For Fripounet magazine, he created 'Kim Play le Détective Volant' (1984-85) and took over the title strip, 'Fripounet et Marissette' with scripts by Didier Convard. Also with Convard, he made 'Henri-Georges Midi' in Gullivore and in a series of albums published by Glénat. In 1993, he produced 'La Chanson de Signale' for Dargaud. Although his graphic style was at first caricatural, it became more and more realistic over the years.
