Kabouterstrip, by Jan van Amerongen

Amsterdam-based artist Jan Hendrikus van Amerongen drew the hippy comic 'Kabouterstrip' in 1970-1971. It was published in the Kabouterkrant, the publication of the Dutch anarchist group Kabouters that was formed by former Provos Roel van Duyn and Robert Jasper Grootveld. Van Amerongen also made a political comic for BBKkrant (1975) and cartoons for Suck and BBDkrant (mid-1970s).

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.
