Simon Spruyt (b. 1978) calls himself a ‘Belgian Comics Engineer’. This comic book artist is a masterful storyteller. The tone, style and atmosphere of his graphic novels vary greatly from book to book, but are always just right. SGF started off his international career, and Junker won him the Willy Vandersteen Prize for best Dutch-language comic of 2014. Time and again, Spruyt demonstrates that he masters and manipulates the graphic novel medium like no other.
