Apa Kenapa

Last week our best friends in Leiden married so Maarten and I gave them a personal present in the form of a comic strip.

The idea of “Apa Kenapa” came from them who thought that it would be a good name for a super hero. “Apa Kenapa” means ‘what? why?’ in Indonesian and we developed the idea into a short comic story where the main character saves the world. The story also features the infamous and omnipresent Dr. Gigi, a meerkoet in the Leiden canals, the ‘bau ketek’ attack, and some of our friends.

The comic was created from two opposite sides of the globe: we would send our scanned drawings to each other and paste them together digitally. Many frames contain drawings by both of us. A few examples can be seen below.
