I grew up in Belgium, land of chocolates, beer and comics. Barely out of my diapers I discovered some comic books (strips as we call them over there) in my brother’s room. Before I knew it I had finished the whole lot of them and was desperate for more. Throwing a tantrum was not an option in our house so instead i sneaked out to my brother’s clubhouse and discovered their treasure cabinet, a huge cupboard with comics loosely piled up as if they were newspapers. Obviously these boys don’t know the value of treasure, I thought, and so I decided to transfer this treasure to my own quarters. This was the beginning of my lifelong addiction to strips, bande-dessinees, comics, strookies and whatever else you may call them.
