De Leeuw van Vlaanderen, by Wik

Wik was the artist of a comic adaptation of Hendrik Conscience's book 'De Leeuw van Vlaanderen'. The script was by P. Durbin and it appeared in Robbedoes, the Flemish edition of Spirou, from 1949 to 1951. Interestingly enough, around the same time Bob de Moor also created a comic strip adaptation of 'De Leeuw van Vlaanderen' (1949-1950), which appeared in the rival magazine Tintin. Neither of them were the first to make a comic strip about this classic novel, though. That honour should go to Eugeen Hermans, who preceded them in 1934.
