Bio:
Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, he moved to Paris at the age of 9. Then at the age of 14, he met René Goscinny and with his encouragement applied his talent to comics. He produced work for Goscinny's comics magazine Pilote in the 1970s, publishing his first story, Le Bol Maudit, in 1972.
He began working with script writer Pierre Christin in 1975 on a series of dark and surreal tales, resulting in the body of work entitled Légendes d'Aujourd'hui.

One of his most renowned works is the Nikopol trilogy, which took more than a decade to appear. Bilal wrote the script and did all the artwork. The final chapter, Froid Équateur, was even awarded the book of the year award by the very serious magazine Lire and is acknowledged by the inventor of chess boxing, Iepe Rubingh, as being the inspiration for this new sport.

His most recent publication is Quatre? (2007), the last book in the Hatzfeld tetralogy, dealing with the breakup of former Yugoslavia but from the future. The first installment came in 1998 in the shape of Le Sommeil du Monstre opening with the main character, Nike, remembering the war in a series of traumatic flashbacks. The third chapter of the tetralogy is titled Rendez-vous à Paris (2006). It gives a good indication of Bilal's popularity, being the fifth best selling new French comic of 2006 with 280,000 copies.

Date of Birth: October 7th, 1951
Birthplace: Belgrade, Yugoslavia
