Born November 28th, 1955 in Lille, France.
Boucq began his career as an artist by publishing cartoons in many different magazines, from Le Point or L'Expansion to Playboy. His style was very much of a realistic nature yet he excelled in political caricatures and retained a strong flair for absurdist humor. Towards the end of the 1970s, he moved on to drawing graphic-novels, collaborating with several prominent writers, namely his friend Philippe Delan, with whom he created the memorable character of Rock Mastard. Boucq then pursued a professional career divided between continued associations with successful magazines such as Science & Vie Junior, as well as branching into television, while also furthering his collaborations in the world of European comic books where he rapidly established himself as a unique artist. In 1991, he teamed up for the first time with Alejandro Jodorowsky on the title “Face de Lune.”
At the end of the 1990s, Boucq is recognized with the highest honor in the European graphic novel industry, the Grand Prix de la Ville at the Festival of Angouleme. As tradition dictates, he then served as president of the jury the following year. After contributing to several more original comic works, he resumed his artistic relationship with Jodorowsky in 2001, and together they created “Bouncer.” This bleak and compelling western quickly became one of the most popular continuing series currently being published in Europe.
