The wake -Graphic novel

In 2013 Podium published graphic novel 'De wake' (The wake). I made this graphic novel together with Dutch writer Ronald Giphart.

In the narration a professor and his wife make a hike in Sweden. Disaster strikes when the professor falls from a mountain and dies. His friends decide to maintain to an old promise and wake for him one night.

Because everything is possible in literature , the professor sees the wake posthumously : 'The closer to death , the less crap and a waste of time we should allow ourselves . At least that would have been better if it was I who had watched with a friend who died.'
