On mission was presented on October 11 2014 at the Comic Days in Breda. Ten comic artists turned the personal stories of ten Dutch veterans into comic stories.
Ten Veteran’s stories
The Netherlands took part in about 100 missions all over the world, since World War II. Ten personal stories, from the Dutch East Indies tot the Balkans, from Lebanon tot Papua New Guinea were made into comic stories, by ten Dutch artists, in styles as diverse as the countries and missions.
The comic book ‘On mission’
The ten artists each made their own album cover, so the book (containing all ten stories) is published with ten different covers. The Dutch Veterans Organisation ordered this comic book for us at schools. Veterans visit schools to tell about their experiences, this book is a means to that. But the book is also for sale in shops.
I made a comic about Major Marc Brinkman and Head City Council Majid Abu Abbas, in Al Khidr, Al Muthanna, Iraq.
