More on the Passing of Marten Toonder

imageThe Dutch comics legend Marten Toonder, who died yesterday at the age of 93, was remembered in a proper obituary about 12 to 18 hours after his death. In addition to a wonderful biography page at Lambiek, I'd also suggest Lambiek's piece on Dutch comics during World War II and the portion of their Dutch Comics history that focuses on Toonder. You can find out how French BD fans looked at Toonder through a series of short pieces, read a timeline of Toonder's career, take in a profile of one of his best-loved characters, and devour a fine article about his life filed a few years ago. I'd read all of these articles for their reproductions of Toonder's art, which could be both lively and lovely.
