About Victor Hubinon

Victor Hubinon (26 April 1924 – 8 January 1979) was a Belgian comic-book artist, best known for the series Buck Danny and Redbeard. Victor Hubinon was born in Angleur (Now a part of Liège), Belgium in 1924. He studied at the Arts Academy of Liège and fled to England later during World War II, where he served in the Royal Navy. After the war ended, he returned to Belgium and when he was 22, he started working as an illustrator for the newspaper La Meuse. He got a contract with businessman and journalist Georges Troisfontaines, who started the press agency "World Press". There, Hubinon met Jean-Michel Charlier, another illustrator for the agency.They first collaborated on a short comic story, but Troisfontaines created for them a new hero, Buck Danny, about a trio of fictional American pilots in World War II. Troisfontaines dropped out after he had written the first fifteen pages, whereupon Charlier and Hubinon continued it on their own.

Spirou Merci pour vos commentaires. Toutefois, s'il est certain que Jean-Michel Charlier a dessiné des avions et des bateaux dans cet album, il n'en a pas dessiné tous les avions.

FH60 Je confirme le commentaire de Busch. A l'époque, Hubinon dessinait les personnages et Charlier les avions. Superbe case dans les 2 cas.
