Professeur Nimbus in Dutch, by Andre Daix

André Delachenal, who is best known under his penname André Daix, began his career in animation. In 1934, he started his daily comic 'Professeur Nimbus' through the Opera Mundi agency in Le Journal. The strip appeared in Le Matin from 1940 to 1944. Daix's wordless comic became the archetype of French silent comics. In addition, Daix hasmade strips like 'Les Fratellini' (in Ric et Rac, 1935-37), 'Saladin' (in Marseille Matin, 1937-39), 'Chiffonnette' (in Paris-Soir, 1939-40), 'Le Baron de Crécus' (in Le Matin, 1940-43) and 'Pollycarpe' (in L'Auto).

Professeur Nimbus by André Daix

Although 'Professeur Nimbus' was an international success, Daix stopped making comics after World War II. His collaboration with the oppressor during the War years, made him flee to Portugal and Latin America, until he returned to France in amnesty years later. In the meantime, the 'Professor Nimbus' strip was continued by among others Rob-Vel and Pierre Le Goff.
