Didier Comès

Biography

Dieter Herman Comès, known simply as Comès (1942-2013), was born in Sourbrodt, a small village in the German speaking part of Belgium, then under the occupation of the Third Reich. Further to this singular geography, a family bilingualism led to his identification as a “bastard of two cultures”. Now recognized worldwide for his work as a comic artist, Comès devoted himself to his work as comic artist only after having been an industrial designer in the 50s. Published in 1979, his contemplative comic “Silence” won him two years later, the price for the best comic at the Angoulême Comic Festival (FR). Today he is considered the spiritual heir of Hugo Pratt.
