    Born in Brussels on September 10, 1954, Stephen Desberg began in comics by writing, in 1976, short stories for the newspaper "Tintin". However, it was not until 1978 that this disciple of Maurice Tilleux, the creator of "Gil Jourdan", began a career as a professional screenwriter. From 1980, for "Spirou", he ensured the continuity of the adventures of "Tif et Tondu" drawn by Will, then successively created the characters of "421", "Billy the cat", "Mic Mac Adam" and "Jimmy Alone". After having designed several albums of these series, he joined forces with the designer Johan De Moor and the Casterman editions to imagine "Gaspard de la nuit" and, in the monthly "(To Follow...)", the investigations of "La Vache" . This humorous series now appears in albums at the Lombard in the “Troisième Degré” collection and has new twists there under the title “Whole milk”. In 1989 and 1990, in a more adult register and once again associated with Will for the illustration, Stephen Desberg published two albums in Dupuis' "Aire Libre" collection: "The Garden of Desires" and "The 27th Letter". An original screenwriter with very diverse talents, Desberg moves with equal ease and inventiveness from one genre to another, from fantastic atmospheres to challenging realities such as intolerance. In 1996, with the cartoonist Bernard Vrancken, he expressed his anti-racism through "Le sang noir" (4 albums at Lombard). Although living in Belgium, Stephen Desberg is of American nationality and, like all the sons of Uncle Sam, he is supposed to declare his income to the I.R.S. (Internal Revenue Service), the US tax administration… No one was better able than him to instruct us on the functioning of this institution. As a screenwriter, he quite logically made it the original subject of a series put into images by Bernard Vrancken. This financial thriller appears under the title “I.R.$.” in the “Third Wave Lombard” collection. The United States is still present in other of his albums such as "L'étoile du désert" (with E. Marini at Dargaud), or "Tosca", an uncompromising portrait of the evolution of the American mafia with Francis Vallès at Glénat. Desberg is also passionate about religious themes. He is interested in the mythological world of angels and demons in "Les Immortels" with Henri Reculé at Glénat, and, with Marini at Dargaud, in the enigmas of Christian origins in "Le Scorpion". In 2003, with Daniel Koller at Dargaud, he launched "Mayam", a theological fantasy series recounting the travels of an ambitious Earth diplomat on a planet with a thousand and one competing cults... In 2004, the magnificent "Dernier livre of the jungle" in the Polyptych collection. His two adventure companions are Johan De Moor and Henri Reculé. In 2005, the first volume of "Rafales" was released in the Lombard Third Wave collection, a somewhat fantastic contemporary thriller which he entrusted to Francis Vallès with the design. In 2007, he signed a historical thriller project, again, with Henri Reculé, entitled "Cassio", for the "All public" catalog of the Lombard.
