Wim Haazen is a Belgian artists who has worked as as comic artist in the first half of the 1980s. Born in Antwerp, his parents didn't allow him to go to art school, so he found employment with a book club. He worked at the animation studios of both Belvision (Lombard) and TVA Dupuis in the 1970s, but eventually became a sales representative.
In his spare time, he assisted Jef Nys on the artwork and writing of Jommeke. Later on, he created the stop-comic 'Zeezus' with Kris de Saeger under the penname Scrunch, that got a spot in Kuifje after winning a contest. Haazen stopped 'Zeezus' after about 80 strips, and moved over to Spirou/Robbedoes in 1983 with the shortlived gag series 'Piccolo Bello' in cooperation with Marck Meul.
