André Galland (1886-1965)

André Galland (1886-1965) was an illustrator of newspapers, children’s books, posters, romans, comic strips (beginning in 1908), and over 200 comic novels for the Paris-Graphic agency. He contributed to L'Intrépide, Ima, L'Ami des Jeunes and Tintin. Several novels featuring Vidoq and Rocambole featured in the Canadian newspaper Le Petit Journal beginning with a 2 part Rocambole sequence on 24 Sept 1950. He must have enjoyed the character because he returned with a long romance of Rocambole which ran from 23 Nov 1952-Feb 7 1953.
