When "De Telegraaf", the most-popular daily newspaper in the Netherlands, stopped re-printing "Flash Gordon",
they decided to look for a replacement for it. They tried the "James Bond" strip, but readers didn't want a
strip about a character who's now mostly known as a movie hero. Eventually, they decided to ask myself and
scriptwriter, Willem Ritstier, to create a new "Flash Gordon"-type strip - and that's how " Zodiac " was born.
"Zodiak" is a fantasy adventure strip about a Dutchman, Tom van Santen, and his girlfriend, Caren van der Plas,
who get lost in a strange world where society is based around the 12 signs of the Zodiac. The strip began in
1997 and quickly became popular.
