About Albert Weinberg
Albert Weinberg studied law before he entered the comic world. Working through the World's Press agency, he started his career assistanting Victor Hubinon on series like 'Blondin et Cirage', ' Tarawa, atoll sanglant' and the early episodes of 'Buck Danny'. He eventually took over the Hubinon series 'Joe la Tornade' in Bimbo completely and continued it in cooperation with Jean-Michel Charlier in 1949.
In 1950, Albert Weinberg started working for Tintin, where he created the Royal Canadian Air Force pilot Major Dan Cooper. The character made his debut in the magazine on 25 November 1954. Weinberg's comic book scenarios were anchored in news events and current issues. Weinberg's aviation series appeared in Tintin until 1972 and were subsequently continued in Super As between 1978 and 1980 and then directly in albums until 1992. Book collections were published by Lombard, and later by Fleurus, Novedi and eventually Dargaud.
