Hans G. Kresse 100 Years

About the art of comic book making

Illustrations © Hans G. Kresse

Hans G. Kresse (December 3, 1921 - March 12, 1992) is still seen as one of the greatest comic book makers in the Netherlands, with an impressive talent for realistic drawing. That is why, for the celebration of his hundredth birthday, we will be putting Kresse's work in the spotlights at the comic, animation and game museum Storyworld and at GRID Graphic Museum Groningen.
