Misadventures in Dutch

Shortly after Angel Contrares finished drawing the new and improved Captain Headknowledge portrait, featuring John Calvin

The "Calvijn Glossy"

The "Calvijn Glossy"

wearing Superman’s colors (see this post), and he posted it on his Facebook page, and I copied it with his permission and uploaded it to my Facebook page as well as adding it to the sidebar here, I got a surprising Facebook message from a lady in the Netherlands saying she works for a “glossy” (that’s apparently Dutch for magazine) that is planning to celebrate John Calvin’s 500th birthday (see this, that and the other post), featuring, in part, ways that Calvin is being celebrated around the world. Now, I may be mistaken, but I thought the glossy lady said she’d mail me a copy of the magazine, but I’ve yet to see it; however, I just peeked at the “Calvijnglossy” website and noticed that they’ve posted their collection of “Calvijn” images on the site. You can check it out here. Then you can click on the Captain’s image and see a full-size copy of it here.

Kinda fun, huh? I’ve never been published overseas before. Or is that Angel? Anyway, happy birthday to John “Calvijn”!

  1. Dear John, the glossy is on it’s way oversea! Kind regards, Marije

  2. Yeah, I had a feeling it would take a while. I never lost faith in you. Thanks a lot, Marije!

  3. you know John, that glossy may be in Dutch? Do you read Dutch? hmmmmmm?

  4. No, I don’t; I’ll just look at the pictures. And knowing me, I’ll probably go to one of those translation sites and type in stuff I want to read just for the fun of it.

  5. Yeah,

    I was thinking, now you will understand the saying, “a picture is worth a thousand cronas’!, ah, words, sorry!!

    There really are only two things that make it in every nations, one of the is the picture and the other is the score of music. You don’t have to know the language but you do have know how to read sheet music to play their songs!
