Enrico Marini

Enrico Marini was born in 1969 in Switzerland near Basel, though an Italian citizen. Throughout his childhood, he created comics for his own amusement; then, at the age of 14, that his friends pushed him to take several art exams. He eventually studied at the Basel Beaux-Arts School for four years, during which his art was influenced by manga and by names such as Hermann, Moebius and Otomo. His career began in 1987 with the new talents section of the Sierre Comics Festival, where his already very accomplished strips got him introduced to newcomer Alpen Publishers. The latter first asked him to illustrate Marelle's La Colombe de la Place Rouge—a beginning that was followed by a collaboration with Olivier Varèse on three albums, then with Thierry Smolderen on the new series “Gypsy”. Then came a meeting with Stephen Desberg, which allowed Marini to fulfil a childhood dream–drawing a western. L'Etoile du Désert reveals, through a new style, the unquestionable talent of two stars of bande dessinée—a talent that would shine again in their second collaborative effort, “The Scorpion.”
