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'.
