Amoras Island mural

We are continuing with the Antwerp 'comic strip mural trail'! This one pictures the cover of  the album 'Het Eiland Amoras' ('Amoras Island') featuring Suske & Wiske (Spike and Suzy, or Willy and Wanda in American titles). The ghost is called Sus Antigoon, discoverer of Amoras Island; he died of alcohol abuse and therefore always appears with a bottle chained to his leg. 

Creator of the Suske & Wiske albums is Willy Vandersteen (1913-1990). The album 'Amoras Island' dates from the 1940's. This mural can be found at the Korte Ridderstraat. To view the other murals I have posted from this comic book mural trail click on the label underneath this post.

I'm linking to Monday Murals.
