Editor in Chief
was a Croc Canadian French-language humour magazine published monthly in Montreal, Quebec from 1979 until 1995.
Publication history [ edit ]
Croc ("Fang" in French) was begun in October 1979 by Jacques Hurtubise, Hélène Fleury, and Roch Côté, with the help of an $80,000 grant from the [1 ] ministère des Affaires culturelles du Québec ("Québec Ministry of Cultural Affairs" ). [2 ] It printed the work of many leading [3 ] cartoonists of the era, many of whom were able to launch their careers through the magazine's help. [4 ]
Croc begat another magazine, Titanic, dedicated entirely to comics. Croc's publishers briefly distributed [3 ] a localised edition of MAD magazine from 1991-1992, which adapted and translated existing "MAD" back articles by replacing New York City references to Montréal contexts.
For a number of reasons,
Croc ceased publication in April 1995 after 189 issues.
