Born in Suresnes, near Paris, Claude le Gallo attended the Estienne art school. He was a comics expert, who wrote several articles about Hergé, Jacobs, Martin and Franquin for Claude Moliterni's review Phénix from 1967. Together with Moliterni, he also created the comic strip 'Poco' for the magazine of the same name, that was edited by Moliterni from 1969. Poco magazine was originally called Pogo-Poco, but the team got some legal trouble (because of Walt Kelly's character Pogo), so the magazine was renamed to Poco.
Since 1970, Le Gallo and Moliterni were also present in Tintin with 'Amik', a series about an imaginary kingdom, and in 1974-1975 he was present in Lucky Luke with 'Mille millions de sagas'. In 1984 he wrote a book about Edgar P. Jacobs: 'Le monde de Edgar P. Jacobs'. He has participated in the organization of several comics exhibitions.
