It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Mars
Tuesday Comic Strip Day.
Tomorrow the first issue of the Dutch Mad will be published here in Holland. I am very proud of the result and would love to share all of it with my American friends. On the other hand, giving it all away online may not be such a good idea. So here are two samples, a slightly older version of our cover (with one minor mistake in the text we repaired at the last moment) and the first of three pages by Mars Gremmen. he does a feature I am very fond of, called Mars Rekent Af..., which roughly means Mars Finishes Off... In this series, he will take on a new deserving group. In the first issue it's Luddites, in the second one it will be Bankers or Investors, etc. If you want to see more, you can subscribe on our website, www.madmag.nl. The cover is by illustrator Wouter Tulp, who will probably be our regular cover artist.
I am also very pleased with this Hugh Laurie caricature with one of the 'Fundalini' items Milan Hulsing (whose graphic novel City of Clay is doing very well all over Europe).
