Sometime, maybe ten years ago, I read or heard this quote from Woody Allen which went something like this: Steven Spielberg says he tries to make the films he loved as a kid. I try to make the films I love as an adult. And at the time, I was in total agreement with Woody […]

In my earlier blog about the life of Dutch King William I I showed my comic about his youth – now we skip to his adolescence.
