Comment

Les Pieds Nickelés se débarrassent de leur Guignol Mondain, en convertissant immédiatement le bénéfice "en liquide". C'est la deuxième fois de leur carrière que les Pieds Nickelés animent un Guignol Mondain : leur première tentative date de 1912, celle-ci de 1930 (Forton recycle beaucoup), mais les deux couvertures de l'Epatant jointes montrent que la finalité reste la même ;-)

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
