Roel Dijkstra

Roel Dijkstra is a comic book series published from 1977 to 1995 by the Dutch publisher Oberon about a fictional football player.[1][2] The series was created by Jan Steeman (winner of the 2005 Dutch Stripschapprijs[3]) and Andrew Brandt.[4]

The eponymous Roel Dijkstra is a Dutch football player inspired by Johan Cruijff.[5] He started out as a player with the local football club "FC Leidrecht", then moved on to "FC Hadfort" in the United Kingdom, "FC Union" in Corsica, and then "FC Rapiditas" in Spain.[6] The story revolves around Dijkstra and his difficulties adjusting to life in a foreign country, shifty club bosses, friendship with fellow players, and football championships.[7]

In October 2016 Eppo-magazine began serialising a new story chronicling Roel Dijkstra's return to FC Leidrecht after his sudden departure from Rapiditas.
