Jacques DEVOS
: planche originale pour un récit complet de quatre planches intitulé Temps perdu ne se retrouve plus. Publiée dans le Journal de Spirou n° 1762 du 20 janvier 1972, puis dans l'album Farfeluosités (collection Carte Blanche n° 8) chez DUPUIS en 1984.


Un de ces auteurs négligé sinon méprisé, mais sans qui les pages de l'hebdomadaire SPIROU n'auraient jamais pu se compléter. Sans être un grand génie du dessin, DEVOS était un auteur complet, maîtrisant aussi bien le scénario que la composition de ses planches. Trois cases évidées et des personnages en ombre chinoise allègent et rythment intelligemment cette page d'honnête facture. Le personnage central de ce récit complet est resté anonyme, en revanche la voiture est bien identifiable : c'est la fameuse Citroën DS 21.

About Jacques Devos

After twenty years of repairing bikes in his father's company, Jacques Devos turned to making comics in 1961. He began his career with Spirou magazine as a writer of numerous "mini-books" for artists like De Gieter, Kiko and Salverius. He soon also worked for the normal pages of Spirou, creating series like 'Tim et Tom' (1962-1965) and 'Whamoka et Whikilowat' (1963-1968) with Louis Salvérius and 'Djinn' with Kiko (1964-1966). With Hubuc, he created the memoires of the Russian spy 'Victor Sébastopol' in 1962. By 1964 he continued the series on his own with irregular appearances throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. In addition to writing for other artists, Devos also did the artwork for some of his own mini-books, mainly those starring characters like 'Schwartzbrot' and 'Superherman'. Between 1969 and 1972, Devos produced several humorous and often absurd comics for Spirou, that appeared under the title 'Farfeluosités de Devos'. He is however best-known for 'Génial Olivier', a genius boy that was already introduced in a mini-book in 1963, but was a regular character in Spirou throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In general, the series dealt with the havoc that Olivier's many inventions caused in his classroom and school, as well as the resulting collisions with his his teacher, M. Rectitude. Devos drew this series, that was collected in 17 books by Dupuis, until his retirement
