A massive 12" x 17" deluxe edition of brand new comic album by Daan Jippes, including both the album and a making of book in one excellent package.
Daan is excellent Dutch artist best known for his Disney duck stories for Egmont. He also worked in California from 1981 to 2004 for Disney, Warner Bros., and DreamWorks Animation.
This is a humorous adventure strip featuring the Dutch detective Havank, and similar in style and spirit to Tintin and Spirou.
For this deluxe edition, Daan has reformatted his 44-page 8.5" x 11" album into 88 12" x 17" pages!
"(The) page layout differs from the regular edition in order to do justice to the pictures. One nice feature is that the size of the individual images matches that of the original art."
The "making of" section includes the storyboards/rough pencil pages for the entire album (in its 44-page configuration).
One of 200 numbered copies signed by the artist.
Additionally, Daan has drawn a full-page pencil portrait of one of the characters on the first blank page! Text in Dutch.
