 Comic creator: André Franquin
A true legend in the world of comics, Franquin earned countless fans for his work in the field, as the artist of the goofy 'Gaston Lagaffe', as the author of some of the best episodes in the 'Spirou et Fantasio' series, and as the creator of one of the world's strangest comic animals, the Marsupilami.
As the laziest employee at the fictive editorial offices of Spirou, Gaston was introduced silently into the world of the magazine's title strip; Fantasio was Gaston's fixed opponent and the character had occasional guest appearances in 'Spirou et Fantasio' episodes.
Besides an occasional new 'Gaston' gag, he was involved in the animation series 'La Chronique des Tifous' together with Delporte, Xavier Fauche and Jean Léturgie.
