The Stories Publishing History
1. Tiriel, héritier d'un monde [Tiriel, Inheritor of a World] ("Lucky Luke" Nos.5, 7, 9, 1974; Fernand Nathan; 1975 (b&w); "Humanoïdes Associés", 1982 (color))

Tiriel was first serialized in "Lucky Luke" magazine in 1974, then collected as a b&w graphic novel by publisher Fernand Nathan in 1975. It was then reprinted in color by Les Humanoides Associes in 1982. A new Tiriel story began in "Metal Hurlant" that same year, but was left unfinished.
Initially a fan writer, Jean-Pierre Dionnet
(1947- ) began contributing several short genre stories to "Pilote" in the early 1970s, and one longer story, the beautiful Jean
Cyriaque (with Solé). In 1973, Dionnet,
with artists Moebius and Philippe Druillet, founded the
genre magazine Métal Hurlant.
For Métal, Dionnet wrote Exterminateur 17
for Bilal, Arn for Gal, and Région Étrangère [Foreign Area] for Deum. After Métal's
initial bankruptcy (the magazine was taken over by other publishers), Dionnet went on to became a radio and television personality and a comics editor for publisher Albin Michel.
