It wasn't until the 1940s, that Le Monnier drew his first comics. He illustrated the 'Tarzan' pages in Junior, prior to Auguste Liquois, in 1940. That same year, he joined Pierrot magazine, for which he made 'Bill la Flêche', followed by comics like 'L'étrange M. Ram', 'Paulix', 'Les Voyages de Gulliver' and 'Monsieur de Crac' until 1950. During this period, he also worked for the Belgian publisher Gordinne, drawing for the magazines Cap'tain Sabord ('Tiffhutté, Homme Préhistorique', le Club de l'Aventure') and Wrill ('Les Inventions du Professeur Azimut', 'Jean d'Armor').
For publisher Artima, he took over the 'King le Vengeur' series in Red Canyon (1954-55) and Audax (1956). He was additionally present in the 'Farandole, Magazine des Grandes' section in the Fleurus magazine Ames Vaillantes. He then left the comics field and focused on illustrating tales in Total Journal (1962-65).
