Comic Strip
Mixed Media
Version originale en 2 planches.

Comment

Parution dans L'Epatant (1929).
Comment faire 1 planche à partir de 2:
L'album paru en 1930 comptait 64 pages. Pour les rééditions d'après-guerre (1946), les planches ont été découpées et remontées, modernisées par l'ajout de bulles et le format des albums ramené à 48 pages (le papier était rare à l'époque!)
Quoi qu'il en soit, les deux versions sont intéressantes à comparer, n'est-il pas?...

About Louis Forton

Louis Forton is one of the pioneers of French comics and the creator of the classic series 'Les Pieds Nickelés' (1908-1934) and 'Bibi Fricotin' (1924-1934). He was one of the major contributors to the early 20th century magazines Le Petit Illustré and L'Épatant, alongside such contemporaries as Louis Tybalt, Raoul Thomen, Marcel Arnac and E. Nicolson. Forton was renowned for his amusing drawing style and subversive streak, particularly in his signature series 'Les Pieds Nickelés'. The latter often took a stance against aristocrats and politicians and has therefore remained a favorite among fans of satire. Countless comics artists have rebooted the series over the decades. Even today - more than a century old (!) - it's still in production, making it the second longest-running French comics series after Jo Valle's 'L'Espiègle Lili' (1909-1998), and one of the longest-running comics series period! Together with Émile-Joseph Pinchon's 'Bécassine' (1905), Forton's 'Les Pieds Nickelés' were at the vanguard of the modern French comic strip with recurring characters. Text (c) Lambiek
