In 1974, Georges Ramaïoli worked for various fanzines and did the artwork for a short story by Jean Giraud, published in Charlie Mensuel. He teamed up with writer René Durand a year later, and created the series 'La Terre de la Bombe' in Le Canard Sauvage and later Circus. The series ran until 1977, the year that Ramaïoli and Durand came up with their second series, 'L'Indien Français'.
In 1980, Ramaïoli created the science-fiction series 'Mado et Maildur' in Méfi and later Ère Comprimée. A collection of his short stories, 'Ouest Terne', was published by Glénat in 1984. He drew 'Le Dauphin Blanc' in Okapi and 'La Conquête du Mexique' with Carbonnel at Larousse publishers. Again with René Durand, he made 'Comme un Vol d'Hirondelles' in 1987, the first part of the 'Zoulouland' cycle. Ramaïoli took over the writing of the scripts from the fourth album. In 1989, he did the artwork for François Corteggiani's historical saga 'L'Horus de Néken' published by Milan. With Philippe Aubert, he made 'Ardoukouba' at Éditions Blanco, a series later renamed 'L'Or de Saba' at Soleil Productions.
Using the pseudonym Simon Rocca, he worked on 'Corpus Christi' (with Mathieu) and 'Vae Victis' (with Jean-Yves Mitton) at Soleil Productions. Also for Soleil, he made 'Les Scythes' (1993) and 'La Saga de Bas-de-Cuir' (1995). As a scriptwriter he has worked with artists like Angel Bautista ('Les Maudits', 1993), André Houot ('Le Khan', 1994), Février ('Le Fléau de Dieu', 1995), Christophe Bec ('Princesse Rouge', 1995), Thierry Girod ('Wanted', 1995), Michel Suro ('Barca', 1996), Serge Fino ('Starblood', 1999) and Jean-Claude Cassini ('Bouffe-Doublon', 1999), all published by Soleil.
While continuing to work on 'Zouloulande', Ramaïoli began 'Colorado' with Mitton at Éditions Carpe Diem in 2003. In the following year, he was present at the publishing house Joker with 'La Légende d'Oregon-Jo'. Ramaïoli has proved himself an artist who easily mastered the science-fiction and historical genre, as well as western and adventure.
