Wuivende Veder

Ariane de Troïl left for America, looking for her father.  On the other side of the ocean she will find a new world,
the world of  the Iroquois. They give her the name “Waving Feather”.

“She’s a daughter of the heart, and because her spirit is free, we call her Waving Feather. She doesn’t  belong to our race.

She is no ordinary squaw.”

He produced several short stories for Djin, Fripounet, Joker, Historiques, and Okapi, as well as ‘Sens Dessus Dessours’ in Pif Gadget, based on the oeuvre of Jules Verne. Also for Pif Gadget, he made ‘Masquerouge’ in cooperation with Patrick Cothias and some stories with Jean Ollivier. In 1982, he began the more adult ‘Les Sept Vies de l’Épervier’, his most famous series, again together with Cothias in Circus and later Vécu.

Les 7 Vies de l'Epervier, by André Juillard and Patrick Cothias

After a short study in philosophy, Patrick Cothias turned towards making comics. He published a few strips and illustrations, was awarded the Nicolas Goujon Prize for realistic drawing, but decided eventually to devote himself to writing scripts. In 1975 he created his first series, ‘Sandberg’, with artist Alfonso Font. Five years later ‘Masquerouge’ was produced with André Juillard. Cothias then took up the scenario of ‘Sylivo le Grillon’, with Philippe Luguy. ‘Snark Saga’ and ‘Trafic’, with Philippe Sternis, were published in 1982 in Okapi magazine. A year later, he created ‘Les 7 Vies de l’Épervier’, again with Juillard. ‘Orn, Coeur de Chien’ was made in collaboration with Olivier Taffin, and ‘Coline Maillard’ with Serge Carrère. Halfway through the eighties, his production boomed.

Marie Tempête, by Pierre Wachs and Patrick Cothias

In 1995, for publisher Dargaud, he collaborated once more with Juillard on ‘Plume aux Vents’. For the same publisher, he produced ‘Le Saumon’ with Pierre Wachs and ‘Beaux Rivages’ with Éric Juszezak. Using the pseudonym Bogue, he made ‘Les Jeux du Crocodile’ with Modem. In 1998, he collaborated with Victor de la Fuente on a biblical comic, ‘Josué de Nazareth’, and with Bruno Marivain on the esoteric ‘La Mémoire des Ogres’. The series ‘La Pension du Dr. Eon’, was done with Griffo. Another artist Cothias frequently collaborates with is Pierre Wachs, with whom he made ‘Marie Tempête’ and ‘Navarra’.

Vent des Dieux, by Philippe Adamov and Patrick Cothias

His enormous production, ranging from historical to fantasy stories, proves that Patrick Cothias has a vivid imagination and knows how to use it. He ranks among the most important writers of graphic novels in France.
