All sixteen issues of "Satanax" were published by Editions Mondiales in 1948 and 1949. They were reprinted in three volumes by Ed. Prifo in 1977.
Auguste Liquois (1902-1969) was a comic book artist and illustrator from the 1930s and 1940s who took over Tarzan after the Nazis banned the import of American strips in occupied France.
Today, Liquois is remembered for his science fiction series, Vers les Mondes Inconnus [Towards The Unknown Worlds] (1943), a Flash Gordon imitation serialized in "Le Témeraire".
Liquois also drew Guerre à la Terre [War against Earth] written by Marijac and serialized in "Coq Hardi" in 1946-47, Salvator, another super-hero, precursor of Satanax, serialized in "Tarzan" in 1947, and Atomas, written by Robert Charroux and serialized in "Mon Journal" in 1948.
Auguste Liquois retired from comics in 1959 to devote his time to painting and fine arts.
