Middagsdags (Galago #1, 1995)

Max Andersson is a Swedish comic artist with a strong underground reputation - thanks to his dense, junk-culture comic, 'Pixy'. Andersson studied graphics in Stockholm between 1982 and 1984, and later cinema at the University of New York. After having worked in the animation field, he started making comics in the Swedish alternative magazine Galago in 1987. Shortly, his work also appeared in Dagens Nyheter and Aftonbladet. His first album, 'Pixy' was published by Tago Förlag in 1992.

The comic was also published in the USA by Fantagraphics, which makes Andersson the first modern Swedish artist to have an album published in the USA. Tago Förlag has also collected some of his short stories in 'Vakuumneger' in 1994. Three years later, Andersson self-published 'Pistolen Johnny'. In 2001, 'En Skissbok av Max Andersson' was published by Seriefrämjandet, followed two years later by 'Döden', published by Galago Ordfront.

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.
