Andre Franquin

André Franquin (1924-1997) was a trailblazer during Belgian's Golden Age of comics and heavily influenced the generation that followed. Probably best known in the US for his Marsupilami character, which was adapted into a Disney cartoon in the 1990s, he also created Gaston the Blunderer. He won several international prizes, including the Grand Prix at Angouléme.
