Our celebration of Hergé’s centenary continues! Today’s drawing, which refers to the wrong number gag that runs through several of the late Tintin books, is by Ole Comoll Christensen, one of the most versatile comics artists on the Danish scene.
The ballon reads: “Hello? Yes M’am, it’s the butcher’s… Oh, you got the wrong number?”
Ole works within classic mainstream idioms as well as different experimental styles: his books includes the imaginative parallel dimension detective series Dimensionsdetektiven as well as a number of small press books and a long list of innovative anthology work published around Europe. American comics readers may know him without being aware of it from his extensive background work for Peter Snejbjerg on a number of DC and Vertigo titles.
