Complete set. Edited by Jan-Gerhard and Marten Toonder. This rare satirical periodical published in The Netherlands during and immediately after the war, originated from the underground movement. Yr.6 no. 1 was still illegally published and no.7 (= Eerste daglicht-nummer) is the first "legal" issue, published after the liberation. Editor in chief was Jan Gerhard Toonder, and most important in Metro was the contribution of his brother Marten Toonder, with several full-page (and also smaller) politico-satirical drawings, satirizing the former underground-press, the internment politics, the military authorities, etc. Metro was founded in Oct.1944 by J.C. Pellicaan and D.D.B. van Veen, both former collaborators of the illegal "Vrij Nederland". To mislead the Germans but also "to irritate van Randwijk", the first number published had the faked numbering Year 5 no.7 (suggesting that it was founded even before "Vrij Nederland".) Publication went on till Yr.3 no.4. Apart from M.Toonder we also find drawings by H.G.Kresse, Fiep Westendorp, H.Kabos, René Zwartjes, a.o.; other collaborators were J.G.Toonder, P.Beihuizen, Geert Lubberhuizen. DAVID stands for "De Algemene Vrije Illegale Drukkerij". Winkel: 421.In total 35 issues were published. In the Index of the reprint another extra-number is included, which was never distributed officially, This is not included in the set offered. A few issues with small stamp "leesvereniging".
