We are in 1886, New York. Crisis strikes, labour is rare. We must survive and many are those who lose hope. Men and women from different backgrounds then unite to move to the other shore. They have no idea of the perils that they will face. Not a time death: the action, humor, dream, tenderness and, above all, hope.

It is at this time that he met Franquin. His advice, Greg progresses and sign, in the 1950s, today found stories. His complicity with Franquin allows him to write about 100 gags of Modeste and Pompon published in the Tintin journal as well as several episodes of the adventures of Spirou and Fantasio in the journal of Spirou.
From 1958 to 1977, Greg creates numerous series as a screenwriter for Tibet, Marshal, Mittéï, Cuvelier, Hermann, Paape, Vance, Dany, Azara, Turk and Bob de Groot, Auclair, Aidans, Derib, Fahrer, Dupa etc. During all these years, he has not given up drawing and gives rise to numerous series including including in 1963 to Achille Talon. In parallel to these activities, he assumes the responsibility of Chief Editor of the Journal de Tintin from 1965 to 1974. It will sometimes take a pseudonym, (Louis Albert series Bruno Brazil), to reduce the pervasiveness of his name in the creations of this journal.
In 1974, he left the writing of Tintin and the Belgium to become literary editor at editions Dargaud, France. For this publishing house, he launched Achille Talon magazine which will be only 6 numbers. This new format will allow to create new series.
In 1978, for Swiss television, he wrote the screenplay for the 13 episodes of the Agency Labricole, a police drama for children. Then he moved to the United States as head of the U.S. Office editions Dargaud. It was at this time that he directed some episodes of the series TV cruise fun (The Love Boat) and Perry Mason.
Back in France, mid-1980s, he produced several novels the Hardy and Lesage collection editions Black River. While continuing his series Achille Talon, he wrote the first two episodes of the Marsupilami for Fantasio, Comanche for red, Colby for Blanc Dumont, Bernard Prince for Aidans, Johnny Congo for Paape.
In 1987, he received the Grand Prize of graphic arts of the festival of Angoulême, and became the following year, chevalier of Arts and letters. In 1992, he obtained the “Giant of the comic” award for the whole of his work.
After resold the rights of Achille Talon Éditions Dargaud, in 1997, Greg died on 29 October 1999, rupture of an aneurysm.
As a cartoonist and writer, work [edit] very prolific, Greg has created many series.
The best known include two realistic series with artist Hermann (Comanche and Bernard Prince), a series of science fiction with Eddy Paape (Luc Orient), another chronicling the adventures of secret agents (Bruno Brazil, with the artist William Vance), a whimsical series of great poetry (Olivier Rameau, with Dany cartoonist), etc.
However, its creation the most remarkable is certainly Achille Talon, created in November 1963 for the pilot magazine.
Achille Talon is recognized for the qualities of its dialogue bright and end, filled with games of words, cultural or literary allusions and tasty puns, which earned him the subject of several theses PhD, France and the Canada. Achille Talon is a series based on humor, the albums of this anti-hero address various themes, and under the cover of cartoon, sometimes serious.

Advertising works
 
Greg made many works for advertising including by using the character of Achille Talon. Often it is offered albums, like for example for buff gold, Lotus, Shell, Total, etc. Sometimes he realized album paperback including 4 new gags for pumps Flygt, albums specific like for example “Achille Talon domestic water” or even “Achille Talon picnic with Canderel”.
He also invented new characters such as for example Pic and Nic (4 albums which 7 to 15 boards) for whim of the gods.
The studio Greg [edit] in an interview with the magazine Sapristi, in 1995, Greg defined the “Greg studio”: “in fact, the studio Greg never had legal or legal existence, it was just an apartment that I rent and in which we were working with equipment and documentation.” Me, I was the scenario for almost all. And then one day all this small world is dispersed. Me, I went to Paris, Hermann bought his house in Bruxelles… At that time, there are lots of columnists who went to see the guys that they all say that they were the slaves of Greg. In there is not one who had spat in the soup. They remained friends. Hence, in 1993, at the Bédéciné of Illzach festival, they invited all those who worked a day with me. It took a lovely photo… »
 
Professor Greg
 
From 1976 to 1977, in the show the visitors on Wednesday on the first French channel, in a section called “The tips of the BD”, Greg is illustrated in a course of BD, where it indicated the various tricks of narration by the image.
Times of existing series [edit] as a writer, Greg is able to adapt to different styles. He returned to many series created by different authors.
Spirou and Fantasio [edit] between 1958 and 1961, Greg wrote screenplays for the series Spirou, drawn by Franquin: fear the phone (1958), the prisoner of the Buddha (1958), Z comme Zorglub (1959) (co-written), the shadow of Z, (1960), Tembo Tabou (1960) and QRN sur Bretzelburg (1961).
It is difficult to discern the contribution of Greg in these albums because Franquin was known to change, sometimes significantly, the frame established by its writers.
Modeste and Pompon [edit] with Franquin, Greg wrote the gags of Modeste et Pompon, towards the end of the 1950s.
The adventures of Tintin [edit] in 1958, Hergé, author of the adventures of Tintin run out of inspiration, asked Greg to design a project adventure for his famous series. Greg is working on two projects, the pills Hergé and Tintin and the Thermozéro. Both follow the pattern of race-continued frenzied pursuit of an object in the centre of many convoitises, namely radioactive pills, in the first project and a bomb of a new type in the second. Greg perfectly adopts the style of the series and managed to write a scenario of Tintin exciting, funny and worthy of the best scenarios “hergéens.” Perhaps this will impede Hergé, who finally stops the project. Later, Hergé told Benoît Peeters (in the world of Hergé): “I tried to work with Greg made me a very good scenario, but a scenario that I’ve never used, because I felt prisoner of a straitjacket which I couldn’t escape.”
In 1972, Greg wrote the screenplay for the animated film Tintin and the Lake to sharks (original screenplay), also adapted into comic book by the Studio Hergé.
Greg remains however appreciated of the entourage of Hergé since, in 1983, when Hergé died leaving an unfinished album (Tintin and Alph-Art) project, his closest collaborator Bob De Moor plans to complete the project by assigning the resumption of the scenario to Greg. Moor struck however to the refusal of Fanny Remi, widow of Hergé, who, after a first time endorsed the project, was convinced by Benoît Peeters to reverse.
Zig and Puce [edit] after sympathized with Alain Saint-Ogan, Greg resumed the series Zig and chip for Le Journal de Tintin in April 1963.
