The series

Having belonged to the boy-scout group of their school, Laszlo and Edgar live with Ebert, a journalist who accomodate them at his home. Now they both help him in his job in a radio station, also Melke receives their help, a distributor of newspapers of a press agency where Laszlo and Edgar work from time to time. But sometimes they are called up by the boss of their organization who needs the help of these two youngsters. The boss, Mr. Powell, trust them and lead a secret group with other people. The secret group's name is Etterbeek, and from the adventure "Objective Everest" have a basement in the old part of the city, a gathering place where they plan the actions, the offices pass to the Philippe Baucq street some adventures later.

The main characters, Laszlo and Edgar, try to move to different places where action happens with the aid of an autogyro, a small helicopter that Chaulet, mechanic of the group, owns.

Laszlo and Edgar were born in the year 2000 for a strip initially entitled Newsstand, about the life of these two youngsters who distributed newspapers to newsstands. In principle I liked the American comic strips and their publication in the press. Later I discovered that those strips were distributed to newspapers by sydicates or press agencies. I thought of this series in the first moments based on what I imagined that was the work in a syndicate.

The names Laszlo and Edgar were taken from different places: Laszlo was the name of a producer I saw one day among the names of people that made a film of Asterix (French popular comic character). One of the creators of that film was named László, Hungarian name. I liked the name so much that I decided to give the name to one of the protagonists. Uniquely I removed the accents of the name. Edgar was taken from Edgar Pierre Jacobs, cartoonist who collaborated with Hergé, creator of Tintin, on one of his comic books.


The comic strips shown on this site show the reality of their life, a possible danger coming from their neighbouring country, a situation that is lived in many strips of this series, always as a funny part of the strip. The strip not only consists of this, it shows the real life in the newspaper agency, in Mr. Powell's offices and in different situations with their workmates and friends.


The two youngsters are fans of classical music, and are good at playing the violin.




In the beginning, I drew soldiers, aviators and cars in perspective in my notebooks of high school, also something on the blackboard when the teacher was not there ... those drawings are some published in the section Sketches. I say "some" because I do not keep many of them since the end of high school. In the following years, I drew on sheets more of the same, and on other subjects, but only on sheets, without any comic project still serious. However, in those years, I only drew things that I sent to publishers and the main idea was to develop a style, nothing more. At least three years passed until I did some English studies with an American professor, for me the best teacher I've ever met. After finishing these three-month studies, in September 1999, I decided to continue with English, but buying the edition of the missing International Herald Tribune published by the New York Times and the Washington Post. To my surprise, on the penultimate page, I found many comic series, unknown to me. Of all of them I loved the graphic style of "Blondie". Inside each strip of comic I see a note: Distributed by Universal Press Syndicate ... and other strips distributed by other syndicates. From there I know the syndicates and their operation, and their history I love so much that I start to draw a series about a press agency in the style of a syndicate. A director, assistants who choose the information to distribute to a newspaper, at that moment called "The Century", and the series follows a daily strip running, for about four years I produce it almost daily. And when I already have many strips made I begin to present them to the syndicates. Everyone did not have special interest in it until Universal press syndicate appeared, which answered that I needed to have more consistency the script and the drawing, and until that did not happen, they had to happen.
After passing a stage without making more strips of this style, I want to return to my initial stage. Back to the soldiers, aviators, espionage, that was my ideal topic that I started to develop in high school. I start to think what now are the definitive adventures of Laszlo and Edgar, I keep the press agency that I created in the strip, I add several more sections, including a radio station and a training section and I call this the Etterbeek Group. I place that all in what could be Belgium today, even in a smaller country but with a border with Germany. Spies, soldiers and aviators and the real series that I wanted to build is already formed with the decision making. From now on, they will defend themselves against the invading neighbor and will know fantastic worlds.
