Fabrice Angleraud was born in 1968 in southwest France. He discovered his passion for comic books at a young age, when he started reading Will Eisner, Willy Wood and Bernie Wrightson, all authors that would later influence his work. Fabrice chose artistic-oriented studies. After two years of decorative arts, where he never felt quite at home, he enrolled in the comic book department of the Angoulême School of Fine Arts in 1989. He left the school three years later, with his diploma under his belt. He worked some as a freelancer, and then, in 1993, he started at Gobelins in Paris, where he studied cartoon animation, finishing with a diploma in storyboarding. Nonetheless, he was soon drawn back to the world of comic books, where he launched into a long line of collaborations with writer Froideval, including "Atlantis" (Zenda publishing), "Harkhanges" (Albin Michel), and "Chroniques de la lune noire" (Dargaud; Europe Comics in English, "Black Moon Chronicles").
