Philippe Coudray is a French painter and comics creator most recognized for his miraculous tales of Barnaby Bear (L'Ours Barnabé). When he's not writing for popular magazines, such as Psikopat, or Capsule Cosmique, Philippe often collaborates with his twin brother, Jean-Luc, on his various series in Japan, and the recently-revived Théocrite (originally published by Hélyode).
""A thoughtful and amusing choice for most elementary comics collections."" - SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL "“Accompanied by a rabbit friend, Bigby Bear conducts experiments and follows his innate curiosity on his quest to live a simple, fulfilling life. While Bigby Bear is fully appropriate for BIG’s younger target audience, [there is] the undercurrent of off-kilter comedy that should appeal to readers of all ages.”" - PASTE MAGAZINE "“Part of Humanoid’s new all-ages line, BiG, it’s a book that can be enjoyed by anyone, like the comics section of the newspaper if it was taken over by a sculptor bear and his wildlife pals. Funny, clever, and insightful..."" - COMICON.COM "“Clever…. The jokes in the comics play around with physics, the comics medium, wordplay, and more.”" - GEEK DAD "“Some of these jokes are visual, some are word play, some are mathematical in nature (dealing with space and angles), and some are slapstick; it’s enough to keep a child’s mind constantly enraptured. Bigby Bear is a perfect balancing act between whimsical and thoughtful.”" - FANBASE PRESS
