Chassé-Croisé, by Daniel Chauvin

An amateur of aviation, Daniel Chauvin went to work as Jijé's assistant in 1967. For three years, he drew the planes and did the lettering on the 'Tanguy et Laverdure' series, which Jijé had taken over from Albert Uderzo. In addition, Chauvin moved on to do some comics on his own. He illustrated a couple of 'Belles Histoires de l'Oncle Paul' in Spirou, contributed a story to Super Pocket Pilote, and made some short aviation stories for Tintin, which he signed with Dan. He also drew the final pages of the 'Buck Danny' episode 'Le Pilote au Masque de Cuir' when Victor Hubinon was ill.

In the late 1970s, Chauvin met Jean-Yves Brouard, with whom he cooperated on short stories for Tintin Reporter and a long story for Spirou (which remained unpublished). During the 1980s, Chauvin produced albums like 'Bob Browning' (Deligne, 1984), 'L'Énigme W' (Fleurus, 1986) and 'Chassé-Croisé' (Fleurus, 1987). He also assisted Marcel Uderzo on 'Missiles et Sous-Marins' (Larousse, 1985) and some Biggles comics. Chauvin was a longtime collaborator of Télé-7 Jeux, for which he drew the puzzle comic 'Commissaire Tanquerel'. In addition, Chauvin re-edited famous comics for their pocket publication at J'ai lu BD.
