Fabrice Jarzaguet was born in Chalons-en-Champagne. He had an early interest in comics, and studied at to become an interior decorator at the École Blot in Reims. His intersts are multiple: antiques, archeology, cinema, wine, music and comics, which are all reflected in his work. His first comics work were the two books of the science fiction series 'Bunker Baby Doll', which he made for Éditions Zenda in 1997 and 1999. The first story was written by Jean-David Morvan, the second by Jarzaguet himself.
Jarzaguet met scriptwriter François Capuron at the Bordeaux comics festival. The two men shared a passion for westerns, and shortly afterwards, they embarked upon the western comic 'Gibier de Potence'. Aided for the scripts by Fred Duval, the first book was published by Delcourt in May 2001. Three more books followed until 2007, and the series was also published in Germany under the title 'Galgenvögel' by Bunte Dimensionen..
