Best known for his work on “Smurfs,” Delporte also served as Editor-In-Chief for the comics magazine “Spirou,” helping to create the memorable comics character “Gaston Lagaffe.”
Peyo created The Smurfs in his comic strip “Johan and Peewit”. Peyo wrote and drew over 8 extremely popular titles in Europe throughout his storied career. In 2008 the country of Belgium celebrated what would have been his 80th birthday by issuing a 5 Euro coin featuring his creation, The Smurfs.
