    A true man-orchestra of the scenario, Yann is elusive. Funny, cynical, ferocious, romantic on occasion, keen on history, curious about everything, he writes, preferably with vitriol, stories that are always original, full of adventures and based on a vast culture and perfectly documented knowledge. An inveterate lover of good words, he enriches each of his creations with tasty dialogues. Born in Marseille on May 25, 1954, this Breton, now based in Brussels, tasted the joys of advertising and architecture at a very young age before sinking into comics by creating a few "Cartes Blanches" by the student Balac for the newspaper. by Spirou in 1974. After a brief stint in Curiosity Magazine, his association with Conrad was to shake up the venerable house of Marcinelle from 1978 onwards. the two formidable accomplices take advantage of their stays in the attic of the Maison de Spirou to study during the night the boards brought by their colleagues and imagine animation "top pages" that are particularly critical of their elders and everything that happens nearby. Expected at the turn, they attack their first major adventure series by imposing characters at the antipodes of traditional comics, the "Unnamable", a crazy trio who will finally find refuge in the catalog of Dargaud. They then undermine the myth of Bob Morane by producing two albums of "Bob Marone" at Glénat before separating to pursue each on their own a work renewing the ninth art. Although he sometimes still offers himself the pleasure of sketching certain scenarios or story sequences for his illustrators, Yann quickly understands that drawing does not allow the rapid realization of all the ideas bubbling up in him. Anxious to invest all the publishers on the market with multiple series, he resolutely abandons the graphic part and turns to writing for a veritable army of designers. We will see him bringing his punch to Frank Le Gall ("Yoyo" and an episode of "Théodore Poussin"), Marc Hardy ("La Patrouille des Libellules", "Lolo et Sucette", "Croqu' la vie"), Yslaire (the first episode of "Sambre"), François Avril ("Le Voleur de ballerines"), Yves Chaland (a few "Freddy Lombards"), Denis Bodart ("Les Affreux", "Nicotine Goudron", an episode of "Chaminou" )), Batem and André Franquin ("Le Marsupilami"), Olivier Neuray ("White Nights"), Philippe Bercovici ("Leonid and Sputnika"), Marc Michetz ("Tako"), Edith ("Basil and Victoria"), Louis Joos ("SOS Aïcha"), Berthet ("Pin up"), Fabrice Lamy ("Colt Walker"), Laurent Verron ("Odilon Verjus"), Morris ("Lucky Luke"), etc. After having placed his pawns with almost all the serious comic book publishers, he returned through the front door to Dupuis by writing epic stories for René Hausman in "Aire Libre" ("The Three White Hairs" and "The Prince of the Squirrels") , the "Star Hunters" saga for Wozniak and some particularly spicy series from the "Free Humor" collection: "Lolo and Lollipop", "Spoon & White" and the "Dirty Little Tales" anthologies. Today, Yann is unquestionably one of the too few essential screenwriters in the profession. Text © Dupuis
