Madame Sans Gene by Suzanne André
Madame Sans-Gêne (Line 103, 28 February 1957)

Suzanne André was a Belgian paintress, illustrator, and one of the few female comic artists of her time. During the interbellum she was working in the advertising field. After World War II, she drew for the Catholic magazine Annette, and filled the children's page 'Les Jeunes' in the newspaper Le Peuple. In this section, she illustrated the educational series 'Histoire Illustrée des Travailleurs' between January 1947 and February 1948, telling a weekly tale from the worker's history. Starting in the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s, she was present in Tintin and its female counterpart Line with illustrations and several (one-page) comic biographies of historical persons.

For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
