A great plate by this great artist.
Michel Greg, one of the most prolific Franco-Belgian comic artist, has worked in various genres, from realism to humour. He is best known for his humorous series such as “Achille Talon”, “Rock Derby” and “Zig et Puce”, and as writer of the realistic comics “Comanche”, “Bernard Prince” and “Bruno Brazil”.
He was the editor-in-chief of Tintin magazine from 1965 to 1974. During this period, Greg wrote various stories for Paul Cuvelier (“Flamme d'Argent”), Eduard Aidans (“Les Panthères”) and Derib (“Go West”). He created classic series in the realistic genre such as “Bernard Prince”, the more mature western “Comanche” (both illustrated by Hermann), the science fiction series “Luc Oriënt” (art by Eddy Paape) and “Bruno Brazil” (art by Vance). In the humorous genre, he produced “Olivier Rameau” for Dany, episodes of “Clifton” for Jo-El Azara and Turk, “Chlorophyll” for Dupa.
Apart from his large output of stories, Greg also continued to draw himself. Among others, he created this boxer “Rock Derby” from 1960 to 1963
He was a close friend of Franquin and his style is obviously influenced by this.
