De Avonturen van Pedro en José, by Fred Hofmans

Frederik Hermanus Hofmans was born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in 1896. He studied drawing at the Hendrik de Keyzer Academie and worked for a few years as a lithographer at Van Leer's Cliché Fabriek. Fred Hofmans traveled through Mexico, the United Stated of America and Canada and it was there that he found his inspiration for his comics. His work was published in magazines Het Weekblaadje voor de Roomse Jeugd, and included titles such as 'Zimba en Ling Po', 'De Avonturen van Pedro en José' (1935), 'De Lotgevallen van Jack, den derden stuurman, en Jim, den scheepsjongen' (1936) and 'Sandy Jack en z'n schaduw Black'.
