The Newport Gathering by Ivan Adriaenssens
The Newport Gathering

Ivan Petrus Adriaenssens studied at the art academy of Ghent, together with the brothers Luc and Michaël Vincent. He worked on several animation, television and theatre productions, before teaming up with his former fellow students to create the 'Orphanimo!!' series for Standaard Uitgeverij. Adrianssens has also cooperated on Marc de Bel series like 'Boeboeks', 'Pit en Puf' and 'De Kriegels', the latter in cooperation with Stedho.

Adriaenssens is especially interested in World War I, and has worked on several books about the Great War for Lannoo. He has made illustrations for the war diaries of soldiers like Odon and Maurice Braet, and released his WWI graphic novel 'Afspraak in Nieuwpoort' (published in English as 'The Newport Gathering') in 2011. Adriaenssens also writes the scripts for the gagstrip 'Caztar' (art Poetzarelli) and the comic series 'Eigen Schuld?' (art David Bols), that is published in commission of the Flemish Centre for Debt Restructuring.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
