Mijnheer Prikkebeen

Mijnheer Prikkebeen was written by Johan Jacob Anthony Goeverneur. It is considered the first Dutch comic strip. Only, it's not really a Dutch story. The drawings are not Dutch either. The original was written by the Swiss teacher, writer and illustrator Rodolphe Töpffer (1799-1846). He wrote the original under the title Histoire de Monsieur Cryptogame. It was published in the French weekly L'illustration between 25 January and 19 April 1845.
