Alex Alice is a French graphic novel writer and artist, who works in France and sometimes the U.S.
Born in 1974, he had the chance to travel around Europe, where he developed a life-long passion for ruins and castles of the medieval and romantic ages. This inspires his artwork, from the grim medieval setting of the esoteric thriller “The Third Testament” (1997-2003, co-written with Xavier Dorison) to the primeval, mythical world of “Siegfried” (2007-2011), an operatic re-telling of the Norse saga about the great dragon-slayer.
His interests range from animation to painting and illustration (he has received two Spectrum Fantastic Art awards for his covers), and extends to fine art and sculpture. His work has been translated into 19 languages.
In Castle in the Stars (Le Château des étoiles), he tells the story of space conquest in the time of Jules Verne, complete with Victorian spaceships, strange creatures and alien civilizations. Napoleon III’s aetherships fight the British Empire over Venus, the Germans have colonized Mars… romance and danger await in this watercolor world of adventure and wonder.
