Almost a million and a half Dutch people have roots in the Dutch East Indies, yet the average Dutch person knows very little about the history of those origins. Only now stories of the past are slowly coming to the surface, stories that have been withheld or received no attention for a long time, but stories that deserve to be told.
In this 'Indische Wortels' edition, around 12 cartoonists bring into view stories about music, culture, art, family, identity, and the colonial past. For more information visit: realcomic.nl issuu.com/thegraficstory
