Flip en Flop, by Wam Heskes

Just like Harmsen van Beek, Heskes has made a comic in the film format (the so-called "rolprent"), with his characters 'Flip en Flop' (text by C. Joh. Kievit). Among his other comics productions are an adaptation of 'Reinaart de Vos' (1922), some independent stories for the magazine Astra (1923), 'De Avonturen van Pé' in the promotional magazine of SPAR (1929), and 'De Beklimming van de Poermanpatsja' in De Radiobode (1930).
