Stanislas Manoukian and Vincent Roucher are two French comic authors, who are known for their collective oeuvre as Stan & Vince. Both artists were born in Paris in 1969; Vince in August and Stan in October. They enrolled at the Estienne art school in 1985, where they quickly joined forces.
heir first comic books were solo efforts, however. Stan produced the fantasy album 'Parasite' at Zenda in 1992, while Vince created 'Eden' for the same publisher at the same time. Their first joint comics project was a remarkable one. Each story of the science-fiction series 'Vortex' (Delcourt, 1993-2003) was told twice: once from the perspective of character Campbell (drawn by Stan) and once from that of Tess Wood (drawn by Vince). The series about the hunt for time traveling Nazis is full of tributes and references to the American comic books and pulp magazines of the 1930s and 1940s. Stan and Vince's passion for American pop culture was also evident in their parody comic album 'Putain de télé!', which was published by Albin Michel in 1995.
Stan and Vince then teamed up with Swiss comics legend Zep for the creation of 'Les Chronokids' (Glénat, 2008-2014), a children's comic about two time traveling kids.
