Gaston - André FranquinAndré Franquin (1924 - 1997) the Belgian cartoonist behind Gaston Lagaffe, Marsiupilami, and artist/writer on Spirou. Regarded as one of the great European comic artists, but still unknown to many. With Gaston he to me created one of the funniest/silliest comic stips. A strip that’s easily up there with Calvin and Hobbes and other classics. It’s kinda hard to come by to purchase but run to your public library, or a used book store and try and find your copy.
