Hannibal by Serge Segret

Serge Segret is an illustrator and cartoonist, best-known for the game pages and puzzle pictures he made for French magazines. He made his debut in the Libarie Moderne magazine Youmbo in 1950 and subsequently contributed to the other magazines by this publisher (that later became Sagédition), such as Rintintin et Rusty, Kansas Kid, Héroic and Jim Taureau, until the 1970s.

He began a longtime collaboration with Le Journal de Mickey in 1954, for which he drew the game feature 'Pêle-Mêle' until 1969. Other game features by Segret appeared in Marijac's Journal de Nano et Nanette, and in the weekly Fillette Jeune Fille, that was published by SPE. He made comic pages like 'Jean Pomme et son oiseau' for the children's publications of Editions des Remparts, such as Padaboum, Pifalo and Pataleuf, in the 1960s. Other Segret characters like the monkey 'Hannibal' and 'Trott'Malice' appeared in Remparts magazines like Mandrake, Le Fantôme and Mandolino.

Additional game pages appeared in Pilote (1965-1966), L'Intrépide-Hurrah! (1967), Vaillant/Pif (1969-1975), the Top Télé supplement Mini Top (1977) and Picsou Magazine (1982).
