DirkJan 16

DirkJan 16 is a Dutch comic book featuring several strips dedicated to J.R.R. Tolkien. It is the 16th book of Mark Retera's DirkJan comic book series, and was first published in October 2010.

Retera often sets his strip in either historical or fictional settings, and chose Middle-earth for 5 three-panel strips (pages 30-31). In it, the characters take such long time to prepare that there is no room left for the actual quest, which is summarized only in the last panel as "they succeeded".
