Louis Girard

Expert Comics

Art and literature come together in comic books.

Louis Girard’s father collected comic books and, as often happens, his son also became captivated by them. They travelled together to fairs, auctions and specialty shops throughout Europe. When Louis started his own collection, he carried on travelling and began to specialise in first editions and special releases. His most important piece is a first edition Blueberry with special drawings by Jean Giraud, who died shortly afterwards. Thanks to his passion for rare comic strips, Louis is well-known among the leading comic strip dealers in Paris, where he often stops by for coffee.

Louis is happy to use these contacts for Catawiki in order to obtain even more special lots from France. In addition to first editions, he specialises in Hergé and is responsible for this part of the auction. Louis especially likes to see good condition editions of ‘le petit Vingtième’, where the first Tintin stories were printed. He also tries to include action figures and original drawings so there is a good mix of different items to bid on.
