In 1978, Jean Sidobre assumed the pseudonym Georges Lévis and specialized in erotic comics. Among his earliest creations were the adventures of 'Liz et Beth', published in Bédé Adult and in album format by Neptune, Glénat and Dominique Leroy. For publisher Leroy, he also did adaptations of 'Petites Filles Modèles' (1982) and 'L'École des Biches' (1984).

In 1985, Lévis was present in Charlie Mensuel with 'Mémoires d'une Entraîneuse' with text by Michel Denni and Philippe Mellot. He teamed up with Francis Leroi and created 'Les Perles de l'Amour' and 'Dodo, 13 Ans' in L'Écho des Savanes. His final work was 'Crimes et Délits' with text by Tony Hawkee in J'Ose monthly. This work remained unfinished, because Sibodre passed away in 1988.
