(b. 27/6/1956, France)
Philippe Adamov was born in London, UK, but moved to France later on. After a promising start as a science-fiction illustrator, Philippe Adamov found his way into comics with the fairytale-like 'Seule au Monde', a comic scripted by Xavier Séguin and published in Okapi in 1983. Soon he made his name with the samurai series 'Le Vent des Dieux', written by Patrick Cothias and published in Vécu from 1985. After five episodes, he handed over the artwork to Thierry Gioux. Also with Cothias, he conceived 'Les Eaux de Mortelune', a dynamic science-fiction story set amidst the ruins of a post-apocalyptic Paris.
Between 1993 and 1997, he made the science-fiction trilogy 'Dayak' at the publishing house Glénat, for which he did both scenario and artwork. For the same publisher, he launched 'L'Impératrice Rouge' with writer Jean Dufaux, a series inspired by the movie by Josef von Sternberg.
