Capitane Kébec, by Pierre Fournier
'Capitaine Kébec'. 

A fan of science fiction and comics, Pierre Fournier joined the influential Hydrocéphale group in 1971. This group, and their periodical L'Hydrocéphale Illustré, included many of Quebec's leading comic creators. In 1973, he created his satirical superhero comic book 'Les Aventures du Capitaine Kébec', which became one of Quebec's most famous comic characters. In the mid-1970s, the Hydrocéphale group organized expositions throughout Quebec, but also in Toronto, New York, Britain and France. During this period, Fournier also worked on 'Les Amis du Capitaine Kébec', a television show dedicated to comic characters.

For the new magazine Croc, Fournier wrote the adventures of 'Michel Risque' for artist Réal Godbout from 1979. Later on, Fournier and Godbout began the spin-off series 'Red Ketchup' for Titanic. Fournier also created 'Les Biodégradables' with Martin Dupras and 'Ciné-Parodies' on his own for this magazine. During the 1980s, Fournier also did an occasional inking job for US comics, such as 'Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham'. In 1991, Fournier was the editor of the short-lived comic magazine Anormal, and appeared in several issues of the Quebec edition of Mad. In 1995, he made the children's comic 'Bibi Veut Tout Savoir Sur Le Side' at the publishing house Bibi et Geneviève. Pierre Fournier was one of the founders of the Association of des Créateurs et des Intervenants de la Bande Dessinée in Montréal. In 1991, he was the first Quebecois comic artist to receive the prestigious Prix Albert Chartier for his entire oeuvre and his efforts for the comics field. Besides his comics work, he has also worked extensively in television and animation.

He should not be confused with famous cellist Pierre Fournier (1906-1986), the French Charlie Hebdo contributor Pierre Fournier (1939-1973), nor with French comic artist Makyo (°1952), whose real name is also Pierre Fournier.
