Diablo: Sword of Justice
Joseph Lacroix was born in Toulouse into an artistic family. It was through Mike Mignola's 'Hellboy' that he decided to become a comic artist. He published his first efforts in the fanzine Black Out, supported by Olivier Ledroit and Georges Bess. He had his first professional publication in the collective comics projects 'Vampires' by Éditions Carabas, while studying Decorative Arts in Paris. He created the heroic fantasy comic 'L'Encyclopédie du Mal' together with his art school friend Grégory Maklès for Soleil in 2004. He then teamed up with Gabriel Delmas to create another heroic fantasy series for Carabas, 'Pythons' (2007-2009). He was subsequently asked to draw the 5-issue mini-series 'Diablo: Sword of Justice' for DC Comics.
