About the Author

Born on 17 November, 1933 in Verviers, Belgium, it was while working for Hergé that Roger Leloup started in the graphic novel world. During his 15 years at the Hergé studios, he was involved notably in the drawing of Alix and Tintin adventures. In December 1969, Leloup left the Studios Hergé to work fulltime on his own series, Yoko Tsuno, which focuses on technology and science fiction. Leloup is a pure perfectionist student of the Hergé School, as gifted in writing as in drawing, and he creates real jewels with his graphic novels. In 1990, he received the 'Science-Fiction Award' in the 'Youth' category for his first novel, 'Le Pic des Ténèbres' (The Peak of Darkness). He resides in Belgium.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By DJ Joe Sixpack HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on August 4, 2010
Format: Paperback
"Yoko Tsuno, v.1: On The Edge Of Life"
Written & Illustrated by Roger LeLoup
(Cinebook, 2007)
An action-packed adventure story featuring the teenage heroine, Yoko Tsuno, a Japanese-born Belgian citizen who holds an engineering degree and loves to solve mysteries across the globe. The series, originally published in French in the 1970s, is sort of like Nancy Drew with a scientific twist. One of the greatest features is artwork, an excellent example of the European "clear line" style, with detail-oriented, realistic artwork and, in particular, an amazing dedication to architectural detail. This story is set in a German city filled with medieval chalets; the graphic presentation is pretty stunning.

This particular volume is a little confusing because, although it says it's "volume 1," this was originally the seventh Yoko Tsuno story published in the French editions, so in a sense we are coming in on the middle of the action, rapidly introduced to a preexisting cast of characters. Some sort of republication rights issue, I'm sure. Regardless, it won't deter most readers -- this is a fast-paced, science-oriented adventure story with a strong female heroine and quite suitable for younger readers, with no sexual content or extreme violence, etc... Worth checking out! (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain book reviews)
