JIGOUNOV YOURI

Youri Jigounov, born on 22 October 1967 in Moscow, is passionate about comic books from the age of 5 by devouring the issues of the newspaper «Tintin». As a graduate, he took the courses of the Moscow Civil Aviation Academy. Then he had to do two years of military service. In 1989, he published some short stories for a comic book studio in Moscow. Jigounov arrives in the spring of 1994 in Belgium with the only address: Tintin, Editions du Lombard, av. P.-H. Spaak in Brussels (address which appeared in the weekly of the 7 to 77 years). Yves Sente, the editorial director of the Lombard, receives him and discovers a young passionate author who offers him a complete 46-page comic strip: "Les Lettres de Krivtsov". This story will appear shortly afterwards as an album at the Lombard. With P. Renard, he creates the series of contemporary espionage "Alpha" which depicts a Russia disoriented and in prey to the struggles between secret services and mafias. Realistic, elegant and efficient, Jigounov’s drawing never ceases to make people talk about him and already places him as one of the great names of the Comic Strip. Now the series "Alpha" appears in the collection «Third Lombard Wave» with Mythic in the script.
