L'Art de Plongée - Jacques Cousteau

This entry features scuba pioneer Jacques-Yves Cousteau.

In May 1971 he was the subject of Valiant's long-running "Who Is It?" cover feature, drawn by Mike Western.

This 1960 Time cover is by Boris Artzybasheff.

 I'd like to thank Phil Rushton over at the Comics UK Forum for this marvellous 1967 Eagle cover which shows the intrepid captain's novel way of dealing with an inquisitive shark (the same incident is also shown on the Valiant cover). Phil thinks the artist might be Alex Oliphant.

Google used the following logo to mark the 100th anniversary of Cousteau's birth.

In 1998 Malta produced a set of four stamps which included this portrait by Isabelle Borg.

Finally, here are two children's books about Cousteau.

Manfish is by Jennifer Berne with illustrations by Eric Puybaret.

The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau is written and illustrated by Dan Yaccarino.
