Jippe-ayeeh!

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

I know some of you guys are fans of the work of Daan Jippes. Apart from loads of terrific stories and covers for various Disney magazines (up to this day), doing both the Micey Mouse and the Donald Duck strips for a period in the seventies and eighties, he also had a career in Dutch comics before and after his Disney period, which include his lauded Bernard Voorzichtig strip, satiric pieces and cover for Pep magazine and most recently two albums for his own Franquin influenced Havank series. I have tried to convince Twomorrows to do a book on Daan's remarkable career in comics, but I guess he is too unknown for that (even though some of the characters he worked on aren't). If such a bok would ever be made, it would certainly include the small anouncment illustration se did for Pep in 1973. A remarkable run of very wild graphic masterpieces. I have used some n my book on the Dutch Pep magazine, De Jaren Pep, but today I got out some more to share with my Dutch Facebook friends. And then I though.. why not show them here as well?

thanks for this post Ger! Love seeing and learning about European Cartoonists, since most sites/books are not in english! Would love to see more Euro comics/artists showcased!

I love his work. How can I Get some of his non-Disney stuff? Has that ever been collected? I tried Amazon but couldn't find it.
