Henk Sprenger (January 3rd, 1919 - December 29th, 2005) is, together with Toonder, Kresse and Dulieu, Kuhn and Piet Wijn, one of the most famous Dutch (classic) comic artists. In the second world war, Sprenger was active at Marten Toonder Studios. Sprenger drew, inked, wrote and devised the plots of all his stories by himself. His most famous work is the balloon comic 'Kick Wilstra'. In 1949 the first volume of “Kick Wilstra”, the football hero, was published, whose name was a combination of the names of the famous football players Kick Smit, Faas Wilkes and Abe Lenstra. “Kick Wilstra” appeared in the Ketelbinkie Krant and in Robs Vrienden and various newspapers. The newspaper comics of 'Kick Wilstra' were finally published in 18 oblong volumes.

Sprenger made this illustration for volume 10, "Kick Wilstra als gladiator", published in book form in 1958. Beautifully illustrated in Sprenger’s famous style, just look at those beautiful ink lines and shading. See photos 2 and 3 for the final publication in volume 10, "Kick Wilstra als gladiator". The book is not included in this lot.


Many celebrities, such as Johan Cruyff and Jan Mulder (see photo 5) were and are fans of Kick Wilstra.

It is truly unique to be able to obtain original material from this famous strip. Original work by Kick Wilstra is hardly in circulation and is almost never offered.

    Ongepast. Koper heeft een ruime vergoeding van de Catawiki organisatie gekregen omdat Catawiki een foutje had gemaakt en abusievelijk info was achter gebleven. Berichtgeving vanuit Catawiki daaromtrent aan hem heeft koper met mij gedeeld. Hij gaf per mail aan zeer content te zijn met de afwikkeling en geeft nu alsnog neutrale kritiek. Dat is verre van netjes. Letterlijke tekst uit de mails van de heer Lindeboom: "Wat mij betreft alles afgehandeld. Catawiki had de twee foto’s met de scheurtjes niet geplaatst. Ik heb aangegeven dat het wat mij betreft zo goed is geregeld”
