Patrice Leconte is mostly known for his filmmaking work. However, before turning to movies, Leconte created comics for the magazine Pilote. From 1970 to 1974 he illustrated various gags and short stories, which already contained the brand of humour he later used in his movies. He was also the author of two long stories, 'La Longue Nuit de Korneblu' and 'Mr Le Censeur aux Champs'. For his comic work, Leconte used a very personal style, with rigid characters, of which the most famous was 'André Nagul'. One album appeared with his work in 1979, 'Nagul & Cie'.
