A Sunday supplement of the daily ‘Excelsior, Dimanche-Illustré’ published comics with speech bubbles from the beginning (1923). It contained both American an French series, notably the famous Zig & Puce by Alain Saint-Ogan. Alain Saint-Ogan created the Zig & Puce characters to replace a missing advertising page. The Zig & Puce series thus made its debut in the issue N°11 on May 3rd, 1925. Zig & Puce are the first French-speaking heroes to express themselves in speech bubbles on a regular basis.
