Piccolo Bello, by Wim Haazen

Wim Haazen is a Belgian artist who 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.

Zeezus by Wim Haazen

In his spare time, he assisted Jef Nys on the artwork and writing of Jommeke for a short while. Later on, he created the stop-comic 'Zeezus' with Kris de Saeger under the pen name 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 short-lived gag series 'Piccolo Bello' in cooperation with Marck Meul.
