Immediately recognizable by his little hat, his cane and his somewhat rotund shape, Achille Talon has haunted the pages of PILOTE since 1963. His designer, Greg, has created a whole little world around this character: a charming residential suburb clubhouse, the annoying neighbour, the stuck-up fiancée, an amateur beer-brewing father, and a pampering mother. Achille has a big heart, an impressive intellect and a talent for conversation. Achille splits his time between the clubhouse and his writing activities for the newspaper POLITE. From 1977 onwards Achille Talon's adventures have changed pace: gag strips are slowly being replaced by long stories with many twists and turns, and Greg continues to excel in caricaturing all the well known characters of the comic.
