Sleen had been drawing his newspaper comic Nero for more than half a century, and is widely regarded as one of the grand old men of the Flemish comic. Incidentally, he’s also mentioned in the Guinness Book Of World Records for single-handedly drawing the longest-running newspaper strip (even though the Guinness web site doesn’t mention this).
