François Le Bescond
Editorial director - France
Editorial director - France at Editions Dargaud since 2018, François Le Bescond has been active in the comics world since he was studying economy and communication, having created a comics fanzine that published the work of many authors turned professionals. Thanks to that experience, he went on to participate in other fanzines and publications in France and abroad, and also wrote articles for several websites. Passionate about painting and graphic art in general, but also about scriptwriting and fantastic worlds, he naturally turned to comics (after a short stint in advertising and communications) and joined Editions Dargaud at the end of the 1980s. He is the author of the book of interviews with Fred, published in May 2013 under the title A Recorder in Fred’s Plate [Un magnéto dans l’assiette de Fred].
