Mark van Oppen, better known as Marvano, is a Belgian comic artist.


Born in 1953 in Belgium, he studied interior architecture before working as an illustrator and starting to draw graphic novels.[1] Probably his best-known work is the collaboration with Joe Haldeman on the Forever War graphic novel, an adaptation of the award-winning The Forever War novel. Marvano and Haldeman also worked together on a comic adaption of the novel Buying time called Dallas Barr. Afterwards he did comic books in a historical setting, like Berlin (Berlin in Germany during and after World War II) and Grand Prix (about grand prix racers during the 30's).
