Bernd Kissel had two career options for hereditary reasons: Butcher or butcher shop salesman. He finally decided on animation and designed backgrounds for animated series at Studio 352 in Luxembourg for almost eight years. Since he also wanted to draw people, monsters and other figures, he started a career as a comic artist in 2007. The "SaarLegenden" and the "SaarlandAlbum", initially published in the Saarbrücker Zeitung, paved the way for the Carlsen titles "Münchhausen - Die Wahrheit übers Lügen" (2016) in collaboration with the comic author and cartoonist Flix and "Freistaat Flaschenhals" (2019) with scriptwriter Marco Wiersch. In summer 2020, the kangaroo knocked on Kissel's door to create " Die Känguru-Comics" for ZEIT Online six times a week together with flatmate Marc-Uwe.
