Candélabres, by Algésiras

Algésiras was born in Central Africa, and became interested in comics through her parents. She became familiar with the work of Corben, Quino and Breccia through magazines like Pilote and Métal Hurlant. She was fascinated by fantasy in all forms: horror, gothic, and science-fiction.

Encouraged by her drawing teacher, she entered the Academy of Fine Arts in Angoulême. At this academy, she grew more familiar with comics and European comic artists. In the late nineties, Algésiras started his series 'Candélabres' at Delcourt.

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.
