#Tennis legend #Federer Enters Comic Book World With #Globi

Roger Federer fans will be delighted to hear that the Swiss will never stop playing tennis, at least in cartoon form.

This week, Globi released its 92nd edition of the Globi series titled “Globi and Roger”. The iconic blue parrot, who can best be described as Switzerland’s Mickey Mouse, was created by Robert Lips in 1932 as a cartoon strip that later became a picture book.

Globi’s latest adventure might be his biggest ever as he and Federer go to Wimbledon, play tennis together and visit a school in Africa. Globi is well-known for wearing his beret and wide plaid trousers on his many adventures, while the cartoonists stay true to Federer’s style by putting him in matching outfits complete with his signature bandana. Federer’s four children and wife Mirka even make a cameo appearance.
