General Description : Corentin is a series of comics created by Belgian artist Paul Cuvelier (1923-1978). Influenced by Robinson Crusoe, Cuvelier created the character of Corentin Feldoë in 1943. The character first appeared in a series of watercolors that Cuvelier made for his own family. Hergé, convinced of the merit of these watercolors, commissioned Cuvelier to do a series of comic strips. Thus, Corentin first made its appearance in the periodical Tintin, on September 26, 1946.
