Extra-Muros, by Daniel Hulet

Daniel Hulet was born in Etterbeek and got his artistic education at the Ixelles Art Academy. He published his first comics in Tintin from 1975 on. These included gags with the cat 'Charabia', created with Blareau and realistic stories about recent history with Duval (such as the recuperation of Japan after the second World War). His first adventure series was 'Léo Gwenn', which he made together with writer Vicq between 1977 and 1979.

He then teamed up with André-Paul Duchâteau and created 'Pharaon' for Super-As in 1980, and 'Chris Melville' for Spirou in 1981. 'Pharaon' was subsequently published in a first series of albums by Novedi between 1981 and 1985. Hulet then joined the Glénat magazine Vécu, where he created the series 'Chemins de la Gloire', written by Jan Bucquoy, later with his own scripts. By 1987 he was an allround author when he created his trilogy 'L'État Morbide'. It was published in Circus and then collected in albums by Glénat between 1987 and 1992.
