One strip cartoon or a thousand words?
One image can hit you harder than a thousand words. A conversation among three Dutch strip cartoonists who in sweeping stories enter upon big issues. They have elevated the strip cartoon to new heights. What can you put into words and what do you have to conjure up in images? Thé Tjong-Khing, now one of Holland's most popular illustrators of children's books, uses hard-boiled satire, Peter van Dongen deals with major taboos, while Barbara Stok aims at making the intimate universal.
