Comic strip depicting Paul Vanden Boeynants, the future Minister of National Defense, and U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. (L'Offensive #10, March/April 1975). The comic strip criticizes Vanden Boeynants' controversial purchase of expensive military planes, which was widely criticized at the time for being unwise and unnecessary, because of the economic crisis. 

Les K. Marx Brothers was the collective pseudonym of a group of anonymous Belgian students from the École Supérieure des Arts Saint-Luc in Liège during the 1970s. The team made editorial cartoons of a far-left nature, hence their name (a pun on Karl Marx, founder of Communism, and the unrelated American-Jewish comedy group The Marx Brothers). Their cartoons ran in L'Offensive, the monthly magazine of the Belgian Communist Youth movement (JCB).

Another cartoonist team with a name inspired by The Marx Brothers is the duo Chico y Zépo.
