WEYLAND Michel

Michel Weyland was studying plastic arts at the Institut Saint-Luc in Brussels. In 1968-1969, during his last year of studies, he published in TINTIN a humorous stylized science fiction series: "Stereo-land", which will be interrupted after thirty pages. Until 1979, to ensure his subsistence, he sold apples, unloaded trucks, then worked in a large Brussels printing house. When the time is left to him, he learns the realistic drawing in autodidact, well resolved to make it his trade. The Belgian weekly Pourquoi pas ? takes him some cartoons in 1974, during this long crossing of the desert. Luck turns in August 1979 when he creates the character of "Aria" during his leisure time and writes the outline of his first adventure. In September, he takes the risk of leaving the printing press which employs him and devotes himself exclusively to comics. He publishe in Tintin again at the end of 1979, after a decade of absence, with a short humorous story ("Marriage in the seventh dimension") and two other stories, more realistic and historical ("The Knight of Predor" and "The Exclusive Interview of Nostradamus"). In 1980, Aria began her rides in TINTIN and quickly asserted herself as a sure bet of the Heroic Fantasy. In order to be able to tackle adventures intended for an audience of adolescents and adults, Weyland joined the "Repérages" collection at Éditions Dupuis in 1994. If he has always been faithful to his paper daughter since its creation, Weyland will carry out in 1988 a story combining science fiction with a fairy tale: "Yvanaëlle, la dame de Mordorez". He believes, however, that he will not have too much of a lifetime to recount the exploits of the attractive Amazon and her descendants.
