Lewis Trondheim was born in 1964. In 1990, he was one of the founding members of L'Association, which publishes some of the top European comic artists. The prolific Trondheim has published over thirty-five books across a range of genres. He was made a Chevalier des Arts et Lettres in 2005 and was awarded the Grand Prix at the Angoulême International Comics Festival in 2006.
Born in 1957, Dominique Hérody first devoted himself to comics, which he still teaches in Angoulême, before turning in the mid-1990s to literature. He recently published Maurice & Léa, a blog serial that combines his two passions.
