The Adventures Of Nero
Photograph - Photograph
Nero is one of the quintessential Flemish newspaper comics which appeared in newspapers between 1947 and 2002. Originally called The adventures of Detective Van Zwam. It quickly changed its name to The adventures of Nero after a character, met by Van Zwam in the first adventure, who was locked away in an asylum and thought he was emperor Nero. He came quickly to his senses, but the name stuck.
The comic followed the daily news events quite closely and often incorporates puns and real life events. References to news events or cameos of Belgian and internationally famous politicians like Jozef Stalin, Richard Nixon, Idi Amin, Khomeini occurred frequently.
The Adventures of Nero is part of my "Comic Strip Route" Gallery. Please check it out for more photos and information.
