Born in 1975 in Firminy, Laurent Astier studied visual communication. He joined a video game development team and worked during three years on the creation of Evil Twin or Cyprien’s Chronicles, a platform adventure game. His work being noticed on the occasion of a competition organised to celebrate Glénat Editions 30th birthday, he signed a contract for the publication of the first volume of the Cirk series published in 2002. He worked as an illustrator for Multisim, a role-playing game publisher and made the two covers for Colin Marchika’s La Reine de Vendôme series. In 2003 he wrote Gong, the story of a boxer in one-hundred pages (Vents d’ouest Editions). Following the Cirk series, he started a new trilogy, Aven, a country thriller written by his brother and published by Vents d’Ouest. The last volume of his Cellule Poison series has just been published by Dargaud Editions.
