A La Bonne Franquette by Serge Ferrand
À La Bonne Franquette (La Presse, 1977)

Serge Ferrand grew up with European comics like René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo's 'Astérix', Jean-Michel Charlier and Uderzo's 'Michel Tanguy', André Franquin's 'Spirou' and  'Gaston' and Marcel Gotlib's 'Les Dingodossiers'. He studied journalism for a while, but eventually went to work as a teacher and a radio amateur in Montréal. He drew his first pages and proposed them to the editors of Tintin, during a trip to Brussels. They were accepted, and Ferrand published several stories with the 'Arsène Lupin' parody 'Larsène Rupin' and the series 'Cousin Barney' in Tintin in the late 1970s.

He learned the finer points of the profession from Paape, Tibet, Hermann and Franquin, but the distance between Montréal and Brussels eventually became too long for a steady collaboration. He did a newspaper strip called 'Zanzan' for the Quebecois newspaper La Presse, and then went to work as a journalist afterwards. In the 1990s, he returned to comics with the series 'Les Vaginocrates'.
