Robert Gigi

Robert Gigi (1926–2007), a French illustrator, journalist and comics artist, started working in Raymond Poïvet’s studio while still at university. In 1948, he published his first comics in the French press under the pseudonym Bob Gigi. Three years later, he joined the publishing house Société Parisienne d’Édition, gaining access to its numerous publications. In the mid 1960s, he began one of his most famous early series – ‘Scarlet Dream’ for V. Magazine. Based on script by Claude Moliterni, this science fiction comic about the adventures of an attractive heroine is one of the first explicitly erotic pieces of work.
