Robin Recht

A single son, born in 1974 in Burgundy, Robin Recht developed a comic culture in the family environment and was interested in different arts such as literature, cinema, painting and of course comics. After an artistic preparation, he studied at the Decorative Arts of Paris and during this period he created some illustrations for various role-playing magazines.

With Gregory Makles, he designed for Soleil his first comic book, Le Dernier Rituel, in 2002, and in 2005 he started with Gabriel Delmas, the very dark and romantic medieval series Totendom at Humanoïdes Associés. He also participated in the collective project ‘Vampires’ published by the Éditions Carabas.

In 2010 he worked with Alex Alice and Xavier Dorison in the prequel Julius of the famous tetralogy  ‘Le Troisième Testament’ published by Glenat.

While continuing to work as a draftsman, Robin Recht wrote in 2012 the script for the adaptation of Victor Hugo‘s classic “Notre Dame de Paris” that was drawn by Jean Bastide. Still at Glenat, he signed in 2013 with Didier Poli the comic adaptation of the famous fantasy character “Elric” with a public success and hailed by Michael Moorcock, the great father of Elric as being the best adaptation of his work.

Then in 2017, he made a graphic shift by drawing ‘Désintégration – Journal d’un conseiller a Matignon’, a bitter political chronicle on the experience lived in ministerial cabinets by the co-author of the album, Matthew Angotti.

In 2018, he returned to fantasy and signed the screenplay, the drawing and the colors of “The Girl of the Giant of the Freeze”, the adaptation of one of the most famous adventure of Conan, the legendary character of Robert E Howard. The album is hailed as a public and artistic success.

2020 will be the year of a stylistic shift with the adaptation to Delcourt editions of the novel ” le jardin du bossu” Franz Bartelt co-signed with Matthew Angotti.

Robin Recht and his companion live in Paris.
