Pierre Makyo

Pierre Makyo (born July 16, 1952) is a French comics writer and comics artist, working under the pen name Makyo. He is best known as the initial author of the series Jérôme K. Jérôme Bloche and La Balade au Bout du monde.

He began his career in Spirou and Pistil.

He met with great success in the early 1980s with Jérôme K. Jerome Bloche, series drawn by Dodier.

But it's with Balade at the Bout du Monde, a fantasy series created in 1981, that he creates one of the masterpieces of contemporary comics, first illustrated by Vicomte then Hérenguel and Faure (with whom he also gives birth to Elsa), and finally by Laval.

As a screenwriter but also as a complete author, Makyo gave birth to great series throughout his career as Grimion Leather Glove (Glénat, 1983), or The Heart in Iceland (Dupuis, 1996) which he directed solo.
