Tony Valente began working as a comic artist with the series The Four Princes of Ganahan, written by Raphael Drommelschlager. He then launched a new three-volume project, Hana Attori, after which he produced S.P.E.E.D. Angels, a series written by Didier Tarquin and colored by Pop.
In preparation for Radiant, he relocated to Canada. Through confronting caribou and grizzlies, he gained the wherewithal to train in obscure manga techniques. Since then, his eating habits have changed, his lifestyle became completely different and even his singing voice has changed a bit!
