Rodolphe T pffer was the son of painter Wolfgang Adam T pffer, a German emigrant who had settled in Geneva, Switzerland Unfortunately, due to an eye defect, Rodolphe was initially unable to pursue a career in visual arts like his father Instead, he devoted himself to literature, writing short texts such as La Biblioth que de Mon Oncle 1832 , Nouvelles Genevoises 1841 and especially, Voyages en zig zag 1843 , accounts of his hiking trips in Switzerland T pffer studied in Paris and became a teacher, working in several schools in Geneva, and becoming titular professor of rhetoric at the Geneva Academy of Belles Lettres In 1825, he founded a boarding school for boys.T pffer has earned most fame for his histoires en images , picture stories which are considered predecessors to modern comic strips He created seven titles, Histoire de M Jabot created in 1831, first published in 1833 , Monsieur Cr pin 1837 , Les Amours de M Vieuxbois created in 1827, published in 1837 , Monsieur Pencil created 1831, first published 1840 , Le Docteur Festus created 1831, first published 1846 , Histoire d Albert 1845 and Histoire de Monsieur Cryptogame 1845 After T pffer s death in 1846, were posthumously anthologized in the series of volumes titled Histoires en Estampes A story left unfinished by T pffer was Brutus Calicot , the manuscript of which is kept at the University Library in Geneva Another publication by T pffer is Essais d autographie 1842.All of his picture stories feature eccentric men caught up in humorous situations The text is written underneath the images, making these some of the earliest examples of text comics Distinctively different from a novel, even an illustrated one, historians have crowned T pffer with the honorable title of being the first genuine comics artist in history His work is also officially the first European comic strip Originally, T pffer drew these comics for the amusement of himself and his friends One of his comrades, poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, liked them so much especially the Faust parody Dr Festus that he encouraged him to publish his litt rature en estampes graphic literature Unfortunately, the legendary German poet never saw this happen, as he passed away in 1832 In 1842, M Vieuxbois , translated as Obadiah Oldbuck , was the first comic book that was ever published in the USA It appeared as a supplement to the New York based newspaper Brother Jonathan by John Neal Monsieur Cryptogramme , that was first published in the French satirical weekly L Illustration in 1845, caused some locally produced spin offs In Germany, Julius Kell made a new text in rhyme to accompany the original drawings by T pffer, called Fahrten Abenteuer Des Herrn Steckelbein 1865 It was this edition that formed the basis for the Dutch translation, called Reizen en Avonturen van Mijnheer Prikkebeen , by J.J.A Goeverneur in 1866 The version of Goeverneur was also made into a reworked edition of the book with new illustrations by Ben Mohr in 1943 Also, Dutch comics pioneer Daan Hoeksema created a story based on the nephew of M Cryptogramme, called De Neef van Prikkebeen , in 1909 The book publication of this story has been reprinted in Holland well into the 1950s.As an artist, T pffer was inspired by William Hogarth, and T pffer s picture stories have been an influence on many of the early comic artists that followed in his footsteps, such as Gustave Dor , Christophe, Wilhelm Busch and Cham.
