1965, Belgian Comics: "Kari Lente", "De wolf van Boseind"

In 1965 the first "Kari Lente lost het op" (“Kari Spring will solve it”) album "De wolf van Boseind" (“The Wolf of Boseind”) is published by “NV Standaard Boekhandel”. The story first appeared in the Flemish newspaper "Gazet van Antwerpen" in 1960. The series "Kari Lente", initially titled "Kari Lente lost het op", was created by Bob Mau (1926 - 2006) in 1962. The main character of the comic is the journalist Kari Lente (Kari Spring), along with her faithful little cat Titus and fellow journalist Bikkel. The somewhat frumpy detective Sus Pens, the strange creature Slurfie and the awkward professor Knitsel were added later.
