When I talked to Kim Duchateau at the Turnhout festival last year, I was surprised to hear him say that for some reason, he wasn’t able to find a public for his comics abroad. It would seem that Kim’s humour, and Flemish humour in general, is to typical, to local, to really do it in a foreign country.
I think that what you don’t know, you don’t like. And for that reason, I present two fine examples of Kim’s strip Aldegonne, about a young, naive girl, who is at loggerheads with the world. Translation, I think, is hardly necessary, but I’ve tried to provide some anyway. Enjoy, and let me know if you liked it.
