Jean Solé started in Pilote in 1971 (year of the birth of his son Julien / CDM) where he illustrated the stories of Guy Vidal, Jacques Lob and Jean-Marie Pélaprat.

A year later, he launched Jean Cyriaque, with screenwriter Jean-Pierre Dionnet.

In 1975, he joined his friend Gotlib by participating in the creation of the monthly Fluide glacial in which he later drew the series Pop and Rock and Colégram, Superdupont, or La Salle des machines. The same year, he created the famous logo on the cover of the Guide du Routard, a walker whose backpack is a globe.

In 2003, at the Angoulême festival, Jean Solé presented the five prizes awarded to young talents. The Alph'Art of the school comic returns to Jean Bastide (20 years old) for his remarkable story entitled The Balloon. At the same time, he illustrates the book devoted to the life of Frank Zappa written by Christophe Delbrouck.

He continues, sometimes, to contribute to icy fluid (mainly in the Gold Series of Fluid), for example in the "gold series", cold meats, he drew the cover.

He took over the drawing of the adventures of the 100% French hero: Superdupont, based on a screenplay by Lefred Thouron and Gotlib (Superdupont against the axis of evil).
