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.

The reviews for Jesse Lonergan’s All Star are in! “It’s an authentic tale of life in a small community, particularly in the wordless sequences of ball practice or late-night party.
