About Kline

Roger Chevallier, better known as Kline, was a successful post-war artist in the realistic genre. Although at first inspired by American artists like Milton Caniff and Noël Sickles, he soon developed his own, personal style. After studying Fine Arts in Rouen, he became a letterer for imported comics by Cino Del Duca. Shortly afterwards, from 1945 to 1947, he created several stories for the S.A.E.T.L. in publications like Sélections de Corsaire He was additionally active for the publishers Marcel Daubin ('Le Chevalier Jehan' in Collection Vaillance), Pic et For-Ever ('Alain le Flibustier' in Pic Adventures) and M.V. ('Bob l'Ardent'). Until 1948, he drew 'Kaza le Martien' for O.K.. In that same year, Kline began a collaboration with the S.P.E. where he created many comics for the magazine Fillette A year later, he was also present in Coq Hardi, with 'Roland, Prince des Bois' and 'Colonel X' (with Marijac), as well as illustrations for text stories by Maurice Limat. In 1960 he commenced working for Vaillant, where he drew series like 'Davy Crockett' (until 1969) and 'Loup-Noir' (1969-1980), both written by Jean Ollivier. In the 1980s and the early 1990s, Kline was making (commissioned) historical albums for the publishers I.D.P. Text (c) Lambiek

Zibbhebu Tu sembles bien la connaître dis-moi. Je vois que tu avais de saines lectures dans ta prime jeunesse. Note que je suis malvenu à la ramener: je ne manquais jamais de lire chaque semaine le journal Lisette de ma frangine !
