Dikkie Dapper, by Bram Ohm

The strip about an Amsterdam street urchin was so popular among juvenile readers, that a Dikkie Dapper Krant was launched, which appeared from 1950 to 1955. A theatre play was made in the 1960s, without consent of the author, which was performed all throughout Holland. In addition, Ohm drew a cartoon strip about the cat 'Miepie' in Eva (1949-1965). Other comics by Ohm are 'Hoe Twee Hollandse Jongens op Mars Belandden' (Jeugdland, 1940-41), 'Oom Bart's Avonturen op de Planeet Mars' (Jeugdland, 1941), and 'De Avonturen van Sim Pansee' (with Jan Has in De Prins, 1943). He passed away in Amsterdam in 1987.
