comic art by Jean-Luc Hiettre

Jean-Luc Hiettre has always been fascinated by comics, and it was fellow Breton artist Jean-Claude Fournier who introduced him to Spirou magazine. His first stories where published in the Carte Blanche section of this magazine in 1975, and from 1979 until 1985, he made 'Quentin Foloiseau', partially with Jean-Yves Brouard, for Spirou's French edition, replacing the army advertisements from the Belgian edition. Brouard published one album of the series under his JYB Adventures label in 2000.

Hiettre worked for the Breton magazine Frilouz, for which he created 'Mark Jones' together with Michel Plessix. Under the joint signature of Letrio, he made 'Pôle-Émile, le Petit Eskimo' with the writing duo Gégé and Bélom for Le Journal de Mickey from 1985 to 1987. In 1990, he took on a more realistic style and launched the historic series 'Le Grand Fleuve' with Serge Aillery, which ran in Dupuis' Repérages collection until 1995.

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.
