Les 7 Samourai (Bayard, 9/9/1956)
Born in Pontoise, Pierre Forget took courses in graphic arts in Estienne, and was active in the illustration field since 1946. In 1951 he met father André Sève, editor-in-chief of Bayard, who was in search of artists for this periodical. Forget debuted in the magazine with several illustrations, as well as his first comic strip, 'Grenouille'. He also created the western 'Faucon Noir', which was also printed in an album in 1956.
Thierry de Royaumont
In 1953 he started his most famous series in the magazine, 'Thierry de Royaumont', written by Jean Quimper (a penname for father André Sève). This medieval series was continued until 1959. The first three episodes were published in album by Bonne Presse in the 1950s, the fourth didn't appear until 1987. In 1956 Pierre Forget and the scenarist Mérou created 'Les Sept Samouraïs'.
Until 1963, Forget additionally illustrated the humorous 'Mic-Mac' series in Bernadette. After some short realistic stories and upon the folding of Bayard magazines, Pierre Forget left the comics field and became a designer of stamps. From 1963, he also worked as an engraving teacher at the Estienne school in Paris.
