I was about to proudly announce that my graphic novel Religion: a Discovery in Comics will be published this year by NBM – when the attack on Charlie Hebdo happened and left me speechless. This might not be the best time to promote a work that puts pictures and religious thought together. Or maybe it […]

Here’s the New Year’s card Yiri and I made: Yes, it’s a direct tribute to this famous Calvin & Hobbes strip by Bill Watterson: What are we dancing about in the New Year? Well, for the pending publication of Religion: a Discovery in Comics, for starters. It will be out at NBM in Fall, and […]

This weekend Holland commemorates the 201st anniversary of the landing of William, the first King of our monarchy. Each year, this landing is re-enacted on the beach of Scheveningen – William arrives by boat from England, whence he was summoned to rule the newly “liberated” Netherlands (although some of the French occupants were still in the […]

Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases

My comic book about Religion (yet to be published in the U.S., hopefully next year) has just been released in South Korea! It’s really strange to see my pictures combined with (for me) illegible signs – and even stranger (but very nice-strange) to find that people so far away are not only reading the book, […]

Two weeks ago our beautiful sweet Siamese Boris died. We miss him greatly, not just as a pet but as a friend who always seemed so tuned in to our moods and feelings. He was almost eighteen and had a great life and a good death – yet this does not make the sadness any less, […]

Here’s the continuation of a bit of Dutch history in comics – the story of Holland’s first King, William I. This was probably his lowest point: exiled from The Netherlands, having to negotiate with Napoleon and England for a bit of compensation of his losses… This panel and nine others are still on tour throughout The Netherlands.
