François Walthéry: 50 years of comics

9 Oct - 24 Feb 2013. The CBBD pays tribute to Belgian cartoonist François Walthéry with a retrospective exhibition of his work. His first cartoons, published in 1962 when he was 16, were seen by Smurfs creator Peyo who took him on as an apprentice.

Walthéry learned his craft alongside Peyo, assisting on The Smurfs, Johan et Pirlouit and Benoît Brisefer, and later assuming creative responsibility of the series Jacky et Célestin. He began working on his best-known comic series in 1967 when he created Natacha, the story of the adventures of an air hostess.

The series made its debut in 1970 in the Spirou comic. Now a senior member of the Belgian comic strip scene, Walthéry is known in his native Liège region for showcasing its scenery, language and customs in his comics.
