Philippe Saimbert is a novelist and screenwriter. He has already signed since 1999 a dozen comic books in areas as varied as fantasy, thriller, SF and humor, such as:
– The processionaries (Fantastic), Break Point (Thriller) and The screaming mists (Thriller) at Glénat editions.
– The souls of Helios (Science-Fiction) at Delcourt
– Goal games (Humor) at Joker
His high-quality poles at Albin Michel, Break Point and The Screaming Mists, and his series Helios Souls at Delcourt brought him notoriety. For the latter, he collaborates with Roberto Ricci, a young Italian cartoonist. Far from the consensual and sweet series, The Souls of Helios presents a cruel and totalitarian world, a distorted reflection of our daily life.
In 2010 was published a humor novel in Béarn entitled: The legacy of tata Lucie at City Editions. His latest book written in collaboration with Lozérienne Isabelle Muzart, The Wagon is a thrilling novel, which evokes at the same time the works of Agatha Christie (Ten little Negroes, the Crime of Orient-Express), while bathing in a Fantastic atmosphere worthy of the Blair Witch Project. A short film inspired by this novel, produced by Cantina Films, will be released in October 2011.
Saimbert likes mixing genres, giving flesh to the characters and … developing surprising ends. His goals are to multiply his artistic horizons and try to adapt his novel (and other scenarios) for the cinema. By trying to interest the various actors of the cultural life in Aquitaine.”
