De Vogels

Ger Rijff was born Gerrit Johannes Rijff in Amsterdam in 1951. He was the author of several comic strips in the 1970s, most notably the gags with 'De Vogels' for De Dordtenaar and Brabants Dagblad in 1970-1971, and as 'Daan en Dodo' in Muziekparade from 1971. He also published work in Aloha and he was the author of the comic on the cover of the Radio Noordzee book from 1973.

He worked for publisher Drukwerk for a while and was involved with various sex parodies of popular comics series. He illustrated the cover of Filip Denis' 'Kuifje in Zwitserland' (1981), which spoofed Hergé's 'Tintin'. His 'De Sex Avonturen van Suske en Wiske' (1982) was co-created with Ben Jansen and lampooned Willy Vandersteen's ‘Suske en Wiske’, while ‘De Sex Avonturen van Lucky Luke’ (1982) with Paul Schuurmans parodied René Goscinny and Morris' 'Lucky Luke'. Rijff later became known as an Elvis connaisseur and has compiled several Elvis photobooks and contributed articles about Elvis memorabilia to websites and fanclubs. He passed away unexpectedly on Saturday 13 July 2019.
