Tardi is a pioneering European cartoonist. His Adele Blanc-Sec series was adapted into a feature by Luc Besson, and he was behind the recent animated film April and theExtraordinary World. His comics are award-winning (including the U.S.'s Eisners). He lives in Paris with his wife, the singer Dominique Grange, and their cats.
The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec are extraordinary indeed.... Tardi creates a wonderfully unique and exciting world in these comics, one that I absolutely loved exploring.--Jason Sacks
