Alexis (September 18, 1946 - September 7, 1977) was the pseudonym of Dominique Vallet a French comics artist, best known for his work on the series "Al Crane" and "Superdupont".


Alexis started working for "Pilote" in 1968, providing illustrations and gags.cite web| last =Lambiek | title =Alexis | url = ] In 1969, he began a collaboration with Fred on the series "Timoléon", and started his working relationship with Gotlib on the film parody series "Cinémastok" in 1970. The partnership with Gotlib continued for several years, leading to the creation of the magazine "Fluide Glacial" in 1975 where the advertising parody series "La Publicité dans la Joie" was published. In 1976, Alexis started the humorous western series "Al Crane", in collaboration with Gérard Lauzier, and in 1977 he succeeded Gotlib as artist of the series "Superdupont", written by Jacques Lob.

While working on the post-apocalyptic work "Le Transperceneige", Alexis died as a result of a ruptured aneurysm on September 7, 1977. His final work was later completed by Jean-Marc Rochette.
