Charles Berberian stands as one of the leading present-day comics authors, together with his writing companion Philippe Dupuy. Berberian was born in Baghdad, Iraq, and spent many years of his childhood in Lebanon. At the age of 18, he took courses in Fine Arts in Paris, where he met François Avril. Berberian's first comics works were published in the fanzine Band'à Part, where he developed a style influenced by Ralph Steadman and Tomi Ungerer.
