French botanist, science populariser, and an early pioneer cartoonist of France's bande dessinée.

Under the pseudonym Christophe (playing on "Christophe Colomb", the French name for Columbus), Colomb created comics that were popular among the French intelligentsia, yet were published in Le Petit Français illustré, a children's paper.

He died in Nyons on 3 January 1945.
