Charlie Schlingo, 1955-2005


Jean-Charles Ninduab, better known in his professional career as Charlie Schlingo, was found dead in his apartment on Friday. Schlingo worked in a loose style reminiscent of early American comic strip artists, E.C. Segar in particular. He began in fandom and self-publishing but would eventually do comics for Charlie Hebdo, Hara Kiri, Viper, Le Psychopathe Illustre, Rigolo, Charlie Mensuel, L'Echo Des Savanes, Fluide Glacial, Metal Hurlant, and A Suivre. His albums were published by Futurolopis and Les Humanoides Associes. A smart write-up of his life in comics can be found in his Lambiek entry, and you can find an index with samples of his work here. He was 49 years old.
