Born in Liège, Marc Hardy spent his youth in what was then known as the Belgian Congo. He started his career as a comics author by illustrating short stories for Spirou magazine. His first official work for the magazine was the series Badminton, first published in 1974, followed by the series Arkel, about an archangel. Hardy became known for his dark humor and nervous drawing style. His breakthrough came in 1983, the year he created the series Pierre Tombal with Raoul Cauvin. The series, which tells the story of a gravedigger, was a huge success; to this date, thirty albums were published. Hardy also created more adult series, like La Patrouille des Libellules, about World War II (1984) and Lolo et Sucette, which tells the adventures of two hookers (1988).
