Christopher Longé was born in Middlesbrough, England, but spent most of his childhood in Aix-en-Provence in the south of France. He studied graphic arts in Paris, and introduced himself to the comics audience through his own publishing label, La Comédie Illustré. His first publication was the series 'Les Contes Inachevés de David Watts', about a lunar pedestrian in a dreamlike Paris who encounters famous people, from Darwin and Tolstoy to Kurt Cobain. Nine books were published between 1994 and 1999.
Settled in Tours with his family since 1999, he specialized in telling (generally humorous) stories about everyday life, starting with his series 'Les Filles', that started at La Comédie Illustrée in 2000 and appears at Éditions Carabas since 2003. In the same genre, he published the graphic novel 'All I Need Is Love' (Panini, 2004), about a single mom in her thirties. With Sylvain Runberg, he made a series of comic under the title , 'Les Colocataires' (Dupuis, 2005-2008), that dealt with three friends in search of a roommate. His four-part graphic novel series 'Love Song' (Le Lombard, 2006-2011) is a coming-of-age story of four friends with a passion for rock music.
Christopher has furthermore contributed to several collective albums
