And this was the first "Tanja and Jan" comic I drew, sometime last April. I like the little guy, I think they give him too hard of a time, actually...
And while we are on the subject of sport, here's a couple more with a slightly "athletic" theme. Besides running and the World or European Cup, I'm not one for sports. But it always seems like it sneaks up in my comics in one way or another. In this little one I did for "Schokkend Nieuws", Tomato has to wrestle with Noah, in order to win one of his animals:
"The Sporters" is a strip I developed in which the main character (Dick Quick) is a terrible man. A mean, selfish bully who lives only to win at sports and be better than everyone else. Not one good thing about him - well, I suppose he is kind of fit from all that working-out and lifting wieghts and such. But rotten to the core.
His girlfriend and fiancé is Debbie Do, a much nicer person - but for some reason she stays with the guy and puts up with all his horrible ways. The humor is kind of "blunt", and several strips appeared in Zone 5300 last year.
