René Deynis

Deynis (1928-1994) started his career as an illustrator for Vaillant and Fillette. In 1962, he succeeded Gerald Forton on ‘Reporter Jacques Flash’, a comic about the adventures of a journalist who uses an invisibility serum to fight crime. After injuring his hand, he gave up drawing and took up writing scripts for ‘Les Espadons’ and ‘Dominique Sérafini’ for the magazine Le Journal de Mickey. In 1975, Deynis turned back to drawing, working with the magazine Tintin at first and joining Five Stars Studios in the 1980s.
