Alex Barbier (15 March 1950 - 29 January 2019,scul France)
Seven years after finishing graphic school at Nantes, Alex Barbier started working on his first comics for Charlie Mensuel. He set out to make a historic series, creating atmosphere by a melancholy use of colour and setting. He is known mostly for this melancholy style as well as for his gay erotic drawings, in which loneliness features largely. His watercolor drawings are colourful and gloomy at the same time, while his comics also are marked by a strict division between images and texts.
After 'Lycaons' (1979) and 'Le Dieu du 12' (1982), published by Square, Barbier created 'Lettre au Maire de V.' in Hara-Kiri. However, this story remained unfinished due to the disappearance of the Hara-Kiri magazine. In the 1990s Delcourt published some albums of his work, like 'Les Paysages de la Nuit' and 'Comme un Poulet sans Tête'.

Harukawa's distinctive penname combines the name of film actress Harukawa Masumi with an anagram of Naomi, the heroine in Tanizaki Jun'ichiro's novel Chijin no ai [A Fool's Love]. While in high school, Harukawa began contributing work to the readers' column of Kitan Club, postwar Japan's leading pulp magazine. Since then, Harukawa's drawings of male masochism have portrayed noble, voluptuously beautiful women and the men who would serve them.
