The death of Édouard Aidans father of Tounga
September 6, 2018
We have just learned of the death of Édouard Aidans. He was born on August 13, 1930. Pillar of the newspaper Tintin he had drawn however his first story in Spirou at the age of 16 years. We remember Tounga (who has nothing to envy to a certain Rahan) and La Toile and the dagger with Jean Dufaux.
Very discreet, Édouard Aidans was a typical author of a generation who trained on the job, plank after board, and touched all styles. His first series, Bob Binn , is heavily influenced by Marcinelle's style , but he is rapidly evolving into a more realistic genre, blithely moving from Tony Stark's Far-West to prehistoric Tundra . Greg will notice and he takes with him Bernard Prince , before giving life to the sculptural Panthers .
The female body seems to inspire him as he will also script the erotic jokes of Saintes Nitouches, before returning to the historical style, alongside Jean Dufaux, the time of the three volumes of The painting and the dagger . At 88, he was emblematic of the popular comic book of the second half of the twentieth century, awarded in 2006, the award of the Giant Prize for comics, awarded by the Belgian Chamber of experts in comics, for all of his work. Very talented, known without really being, Aidans was a talented and prolific author.
