Ede-based illustrator Nico Schuurman is fascinated by personal tales as well as 20th century Dutch history. He combined these interests in his comic 'Grebbelinie 1940 - Bloedspoor', a historical account of the Dutch defence line against the German army during World War II. Schuurman published his story on the StripSter website, and a book collection was published through Boekscout.nl in 2012. A second book, dealing with Ede during Operation Market Garden, was released in September 2014 ('Ede 1944 & Market Garden'). Schuurman has published several other comic stories on the StripSter portal since 2008, including stories starring his characters 'Rongo' and 'Tork'. An album of 'Tork' called 'De Onbekende Planeet' was published in August 2015.
