M Tillieux

Born in 1921, Maurice Tillieux, best known for the 16-volume Gil Jordan series, was also a prolific writer for other artists, responsible for a number of episodes of "Tif et Tondu" (drawn by Will) and "Jess Long" (drawn by Piroton). Famous among other things for his spectacular depictions of car chases and crashes, Tillieux died in an automobile accident in 1978.
