RIP Lo Hartog van Banda (1916 – 2006)

“Many readers in the Netherlands consider him the only Lucky Luke writer who even came close to the quality of Goscinny’s work,” Reinder writes in his obituary of Lo Hartog van Banda, who died yesterday at age 89, and I happen to be one of those many. Van Banda was mainly popular in the Netherlands; some of my other favourites among his work are Ti-ta-tovenaar (children’s tv), Arman and Ilva (comic) and Ambrosius (comic).
