F'Murr or F'Murrr (born March 31, 1946 in Paris) whose real name is Richard Peyzaret, is a French comics creator. He is most famous for the long running series "Le Génie des alpages" ("The Genius of the Mountain Pastures").


Peyzaret grew up as an admirer of Hergé and André Franquin, but studied Applied Arts for six years in Paris before meeting the BD industry, by arriving at the workshop of Raymond Poïvet.cite web | last =BDparadisio.com| title =F'murrr | url =http://www.bdparadisio.com/scripts/detail.cfm?Id=993 fr_icon] This led to an introduction to René Goscinny and starting work for "Pilote" in 1971, making his debut with the gags series "Contes à Rebours". The unusued boards of this strip later formed the basis of his first album, "Au loup!".

While at "Pilote", he began his most famous work, "Le Génie des alpages" in 1973. This series features an old and a young shepherd, their talking shepherd's dog, a flock of mad sheep and other abnormal characters behaving unpredictably in alpine surroundings. When "Pilote" ceased publication, the series were issued directly into albums.

He also held a long associations with several of the other francophone serial magazines of this period. "Naphtalène" was also published in "Pilote", "Porfirio et Gabriel" in "Le Canard Sauvage" and "Circus", "Jehanne d'Arc" in "Métal Hurlant", "Robin des Boîtes" in "Fluide Glacial", and "Les Mirrois de Marguerite" and "Ala et Lolli" were created for the "Spirou" supplement "Le Trombone Illustré".cite web | last =Lambiek Comiclopedia | title =F'murr | url =http://lambiek.net/artists/f/fmurr.htm]

In 1985 he began the strip "Histoires Déplacées" in "(A SUIVRE)" satirizing the ongoing Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. These were collected in the 1987 album named "Le char de l'état dérape sur le sentier de la guerre" ("The State's Tank Slips on the Path of War").

A few instances of F'Murr translated into the English language were printed in "Heavy metal" and "National Lampoon" magazine in the late 70s.cite web | last = Michigan State University Libraries | title = index F | url =http://www.lib.msu.edu/comics/rri/frri/flying_c.htm ]
