Stephen Desberg is a successful comics writer in both the humorous and the realistic genre. He creates fantastic atmospheres, and he often criticized subjects like fascism and racism. After some scriptwork for Tintin, Desberg assisted Maurice Tillieux on the scriptwriting for 'Tif et Tondu' by Will in Spirou. After Tillieux's death, Desberg continued the scenario work for this series on his own. Soon he expanded his activities for the Spirou magazine.
In October 2000 Desberg started 'Le Scorpion' with Enrico Marini. At the publishing house Glénat, he began series like 'Les Immortels' (with Reculé) and 'Tosca' (with Francis Vallès), both in 2001. In 2003, came the SF comic 'Mayam' with Daniel Koller at Dargaud, and in 2005 followed 'Rafales' with Vallès at Lombard.
