Quick & Flupke

Quick & Flupke (Quick et Flupke in French) is a comic book series by Hergé (famous for The Adventures of Tintin) about two street urchins in Brussels named Quick and Flupke. The two boys unintentionally cause trouble, leading to annoyance with their parents and the police.
The series was published in black and white in the pages of Le Petit Vingtième starting in January 1930. The strips continued until 1940 (although they were republished in the Tintin magazine, conceived by Raymond Leblanc, this time coloured by Studios Hergé).
Hergé eventually abandoned the series in order to spend more time on The Adventures of Tintin, his more famous comic series. After Hergé's death, the books were coloured by the Studios Hergé and re-issued by the publishing house Casterman in 12 volumes, between 1985 and 1991.
