Yvan Delporte (1928)

Type :  


Yvan Delporte (24 June 1928 - 5 March 2007<small></small>) was a Belgian comics writer, and was editor-in-chief of Spirou magazine between 1955 and 1968 during a period considered by many the golden age of Franco-Belgian comics. He is credited with several creative contributions, among these his collaborations with Peyo on The Smurfs, with René Follet on Steve Severin and André Franquin with the creation of Gaston Lagaffe and the co-authorship of Idées noires.


Delporte started at Spirou as a retoucher and handler of other odd jobs, but in time touched upon a great deal of different occupations within the comics industry. In 1955, upon becoming editor-in-chief of Spirou in place of Charles Dupuis, a long-lasting collaboration with Franquin began, which would spawn many creations.<small></small>
