Steve Requin (born Stéphane Johnson, July 21, 1968) is a Canadian comics artist and writer from Montréal in Québec, Canada.


Steve Requin started publishing comics in 1988 for a French Canadian pop music magazine called Wow !, comics that he signed under the pseudonym Jon-Son.

In December 1994 he adopted the name Steve Requin and founded Les Publications Requin Roll for which he created and published many underground magazines such as Requin Roll and Les Plagiats de la BD. In 1999, he founded MensuHell, Québec's longest monthly underground comics magazine. MensuHell's ownership has been passed to Francis Hervieux in 2002, who kept publishing it until issue #109, dated December 2008. Steve closed down Les Publications Requin Roll in January 2003.

From November 2001 to November 2008, Steve has been a writer and artist for Safarir, Québec's answer to the American magazine Mad. He mostly wrote and/or drew parodies of TV shows and movies, but he is also known for comics series such as Malice (drawn by Serge Boisvert DeNevers) and Konar.

On the Internet, Steve is better known for a list he wrote about funny combined popular French Canadian last names, and for his former webcomics, Artiztech College and The Eight.
