Born in Paris (France), in 1970, Fabrice Sapolsky has broken into the comic book world as creator of the French magazine about American comics Comic Box in 1998.
In 2005, he starts writing stories as a hobby but his early projects will never be published. Very much focused on his “day job” as Editor in Chief of Comic Box and packager for magazine publishers, he chooses to only write short pieces geared toward kids.
But in December 2006, he wakes up one morning with the idea of alternate reality Spider-Man set in the 1930s. After sharing his idea with David Hine, they both decide to pitch it to Marvel comics as Spider-Man Noir. The first mini-series, will be published between Dec.2008 and March 2009. A second series, Spider-Man Noir: Eyes without a Face will follow a year later (Dec.2009-March 2010). Both series have been blessed with critical and commercial success.
In 2010, Fabrice Sapolsky comes back to kids comics with an album about wrestling designed for the French market and called Catch Heroes, for Jungle Comics, co-written with longtime Comic Box partner Xavier Fournier and drawn by the fabulous Jack Lawrence.
A year later, Fabrice leaves Comic Box for good, passing the torch to Xavier Fournier and Lise Benkemoun to focus on editing and writing comics. He helps Jungle Comics founder Moïse Kissous create a new label called Atlantic BD and writes the imprint’s first original graphic novel : Black Box with art by veteran artist Tom Lyle and coloring genius Sebastien Lamirand.
In 2013, the writer comes back with a new project, his most ambitious to date : One Hit Wonder with superstar Ariel Olivetti on art. Fabrice got the idea of the name and the commercial star turned hitman concept in 2012 while talking to his friend (and hugely talented writer) Joe Keatinge. The series has debuted in the USA, through Image Comics, in February 2014.
In September 2014, Fabrice Sapolsky reunited with David Hine for Edge of Spider-Verse#1, a new Spider-Man Noir adventure that tied into the massive SpiderVerse crossover at Marvel.
He spent most of 2015 learning to draw and moving from Paris to Brooklyn, New York.
On February 2nd, 2016, Fabrice launched his new creator owned comic book, Intertwined with rising star Fred Pham Chuong, on Kickstarter. The campaign was successful and the series has been signed to Dynamite Comics for a worldwide release starting October 5th, 2016.
His latest venture : organizing his own comic book convention! After meeting with President of the Kol Israel Synagogue, Fred Polaniecki, Fabrice decides to create a convention like no other: the Jewish Comic Con. This convention, not a Jew-Centric con, is as much a celebration of the founders of the comic book industry (where 90% of the creators happened to be jewish) as a place to bridge communities of Brooklyn around a fantastic medium (comics, of course). The con took place on November 13th, 2016. A second one is scheduled for April 29th, 2018.
Starting April 2017, Fabrice Sapolsky embarked on a 28 dates Tour with his sparring partner Will Torres. They showcased their talents, comics and art at comic book conventions, stores and everywhere they could.
The Intertwined graphic novel came out on August 8th, 2017 from Dynamite Comics.
In November 2017, Fabrice relocated to Los Angeles where he took the position of senior editor at Humanoids Publishing.
Fabrice Sapolsky edits, designs, draws and, of course, writes. He has many projects in development and likes the quote : “To Be Continued”.
