De Melkwegers by Gos
De Melkwegers (Robbedoes, 24-6-1979)

Roland Goossens, better known as Gos, was one of the popular artists that published in Spirou magazine in the 1970s. Before turning to comics, Goossens worked in the Navy for eleven years. He devoted his spare time to comic strips, and his first story was published in the military magazine Nos Forces. His professional comics career began when he joined Studio Peyo. There, he assisted Peyo on several episodes of ‘Les Schtroumpfs’ and ‘Benoît Brisefer’. At the same time, he created several short stories for the magazine. He also wrote scenarios for Walthéry, including episodes of ‘Jacky et Célestin’ and the first two adventures of ‘Natacha’.

Gil Jourdan, by Gos

Gos had his breakthrough in 1969, when he took over the artwork of the popular ‘Gil Jourdan’ series from Maurice Tillieux. He illustrated the series until Tillieux’s death in 1979. In 1972, he also began a series of his own: ‘Khéna et le Scrameustache’. This humorous and friendly science-fiction comic, about an extraterrestrial cat and his earth friend, became one of Spirou’s most popular series. With adding such alien creatures as ‘Les Galaxiens’ to the series, Gos developed an entire universe around his two main characters. Since the mid-1980s, Gos’s son Walt assisted his father on the series, and later on began drawing gags with ‘Les Galaxiens’ on his own.
