Gerard Reve/Dick Matema - De Avonden [341 originele Parool uitgaven] - 2002

‘De Avonden is a book possessed, written in a daze of insanity,’ wrote Dick Matema in Het Parool on Tuesday 29 October. In 341 episodes of his new comic, he wants to do justice to the masterpiece of the young Gerard Reve. ‘Authenticity,’ he says, ‘is nice, but it shouldn't be slick.’ And authentic it is. And it will become more unique by the day.
It is 2002. Het Parool is bringing out a newspaper edition of a world-famous book in comic book form that is unique in the Netherlands and the world. When Gerard Reve looked at the drawings he could only say ‘splendid, splendid, this is magnificent’. Reve then immersed himself in the texts accompanying the drawings, which were taken word for word and in their entirety from his debut novel. Matena says in the Parool: “He (Reve) looked at me over his glasses and said: ‘Did I really write that?’ When I confirmed that, he said: ‘Well, they say I'm a great writer, but they're quite right.’ The masterpiece of a magnificent writer and a magnificent artist in one unique edition. The original first edition of the drawn ‘De Avonden’ in newspaper form. Complete, unbound.
