JIDEHEM 

When Franquin decided to introduce this businessman failing to sign a contract with Spirou, it is unclear that it will be the name of his friend and collaborator Jean de Mesmaeker... JIDEHEM himself, suggesting a resemblance to his father and bring Franquin to this name...

Jidéhem is not twenty years old when he joined the team of the weekly "Heroic-albums" for his first series "Ginger". After the disappearance of the title in 1956, he went naturally to the  Spirou team with a quickly overwhelmed Franquin. He entered the studio of the Master and participates sets Spirou, reflecting and developing motion graphics Items Starter and collaborates extensively with the early Gaston. But the character does not suit him, too soft... Jidéhem line drier dream of getting his own serie. It's Yvan Delporte who give him this opportunity by writing his first adventure Starter. He will then have all freedom to create... As his wife is expecting a little girl, the artist decided to launch a young heroine, "Sophie", which appear alongside Starter in the episode " L'oeuf de Karamazout " in 1964, then take its autonomy and live twenty adventures until 1995, often on Vicq scenarios.

The Napoleon Gallery is pleased to present the work of this historic artist. The original works of "Sophie" series are extremely rare on the market. They will therefore be available on request in accordance with the author.

Owning a Jidéhem page is to keep a part of the heritage of the franco-Belgian comics, but also and especially to approach the work of one of the greatest authors of Le journal de Spirou.
