From Tintin, by Jean Torton 1965

Jean Torton started drawing for the magazine Tintin in 1962. For this magazine he created numerous short stories and the historical comics 'Les Conquérants du Mexique' and 'Cortés à Mexico'. While still working for Tintin, he was also active in chief editor Raymond Leblanc's animation studio Belvision, where he worked on animated features based on René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo's 'Astérix' ('Astérix le Gaulois', 1965) and Hergé's 'Tintin' ('Tintin et le Temple du Soleil', 1969). During the 1970s and 1980s, he turned towards adult comics, for which he used the pseudonym Jéronaton. Torton started out at Métal Hurlant with 'Champakou', 'L'Oeuf du Monde' and 'Les Amazones'. For the last couple of years, he has been applying himself to a hyperrealistic style, which can be seen in works such as 'La Fresque Biblique' and 'Yeshoua, la Promesse du Royaume'.
