Strips & Cartoons

Under construction!


Marten Toonder
( Rotterdam 02-05-1912, † Laren 27-07-2005)

During World War II, he began to write comics with stories about Tom Poes and a noble lord Olivier B. Bommel. These comics were published in the newspapers of the under-ground resistance. In the first comic strip he told us that there was a remarkable country to the east of the Netherlands because, if high shoes were trown in to it, soldiers came out of it.
After the war, he continued to publish about that world alienated lord from Rommeldam and his practical boyfriend Tom Poes. Many children learned humor from this stories. In the studios of Marten Toonder, many old and new comics, later became cartoon movies. As an example of the way of telling, the (later) “refugee crisis” is cited.

Hans Georg Kresse
( Amsterdam 03-12-1921, † Doorwerth 12-03-1992)
He published his first drawings in “de Verkenner”, in 1938, in the monthly leaflet of the scouts. Therein appeared his first story about Tarzan. In 1942 he became acquainted with Marten Toonder who had just begun stories about Tom Poes. This encounter gave him the courage to continue drawing.
During the war he was hidden in the Toonder Studios and, together with Toonder, he started the story of a Viking (Eric de Noorman). The first drawings were made in 1943 but it was impossible to publish them during the war. He also came into contact with Han van Gelder in these Toonder Studios. Together they made the story “by atomic rocket to mars”. Only after the war his stories were printed.
