Tijs Wijs, by Willy Smit (1941)

Willy Smit is a Dutch comic artist who drew the text-comic 'Tijs Wijs de Torenwachter' (written by Herman Looman) which appeared in newspaper De Telegraaf/De Courant Het Nieuws van den Dag in 1940-42. Four books with the character were published, 'Het Avontuur met Oebiranka, de Wonderpapegaai', 'Bolletje Bink en de Wonderdokter', 'Avonturen met een Tooverring' and 'De Blauwe Diamanten van Bagdad'. Because of illness, one 'Tijs Wijs' story was drawn by Marten Toonder.
