Xavier Besse
Name (reversed)
Besse, Xavier

<b>Xavier Besse</b> is a French comic book artist. He is a graduate of the Ecole du Louvre and of the University of London, and of the China department of the Guimet Museum in Paris. He first began as an illustrator of illustrated books for children published by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux, but after a few decisive encounters with writers, such as Jean-David Morvan and Olivier Supiot, he now devotes himself mainly to comics. His interest in Sinology inspired him to create Laowaï in 2017, a series of historical adventures that plunges readers into nineteenth-century Chinese history.
