Gébé

Gébé (Georges Blondeaux; 1929–2004) was a fixture of the French press for almost fifty years. He was best known as a cartoonist, but he was also an author, lyricist, screenwriter, and dramatist; a maker of short films and photo-novels; and a beloved editor and nurturer of new talent. From 1970 to 1985, he was the editor-in-chief of Charlie Hebdo. He returned when the weekly was reborn in 1992 and served as the editorial director until his death.
