So I think Elsschot's story is really good, and turning his work into comics is very possible, when done with care, skill, and understanding of both the medium you work in, your own work, and that of Elsschot. That is not what happened here.

Matena chose to keep Elsschot's text intact. Completely. Out of respect for the masterful work the is Elsschot's dwaallicht? Why then, does that first sentence, which is one of the best starting sentences I have ever read, seem hollow and pointless in Matena'...more

Verstripping van de novella van Willem Elsschot. De donkere tekenstijl past wonderwel bij het verhaal. En het verhaal zelf universeel en nog steeds actueel. Prachtig.
