Jean Depelley is a French writer for cinema and comics, a film critic and a journalist specialized in American comic books (particularly in Jack Kirby) and genre movies. He lives in Limousin (France) and is interested in comics, popular literature and genre films.

In the mid ’80s, he participated to “The ancient ones” show, a local radio program dedicated to popular literature and comics. He was in charge of a film society and wrote many articles on films.

In ‘94, he met director Fabrice Lambot, then editor-in-chief of Atomovision fanzine, and shortly after wrote for the magazine. In 2007, when Metaluna Productions decided to publish a new magazine, founders Jean-Pierre Putters and Fabrice Lambot gave Jean Depelley the role of editor-in-chief on Métaluna Magazine. In the magazine, he wrote many long articles (on European Tarzan films, Russian sci-fi films…).

Still for Metaluna Productions, he wrote or co-wrote several scripts for films such as “Le pénitent” (still a project), “Le sang du châtiment” (released), “M14″ (in production) or “Dying God” (released)…

Along with his film activities, he also writes scripts for comics (the graphic novels “Totems” and “Megasauria” with artist Jean-Marie Arnon, the series “Megasauria”, “Galaxy Green”, “Spider-Spry”, etc… for Strange magazine), articles on comics in titles such as Comics Culture and Univers Comics or The Jack Kirby Collector in the United States.

He translates comics into French in Strange (”Silver Star”, “8-Opus”, “Venturesome Motes”…). He also co-publishes books on comics such “Les travaux extraordinaires d’Alan Moore” at TwoMorrows Publishing or Frank Le Gall’s graphic novel “Valry Bonpain : aventures en Mi-Bémol” at BD Rêve. With Univers Comics Unlimited, he co-publishes the magazines Golden Comics, Golden Titans and Golden Legends, dedicated to the US golden age of comics.
