Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Société Dargaud, doing business as Les Éditions Dargaud, is a publisher of Franco-Belgian comics series. It was founded in 1936 by Georges Dargaud (born 24 April 1911), publishing its first comics in 1943.
Initially, Dargaud published novels for women. In 1948, they started Line, a „magazine for elegant women”, as well as a French edition of the Belgian Tintin magazine. In 1960, Dargaud bought the weekly Pilote magazine from René Goscinny, Albert Uderzo, and Jean-Michel Charlier, and the same year they published their first albums. Goscinny continued as editor of the magazine, and Charlier was album editor for a period.
