Bill & Bull, by Marcel Antoine

Marcel Antoine was a cartoonist, caricaturist, illustrator and animator. He was a singer for Radio-Schaerbeek, and he played sketches with the Bruxeles character 'Slache' for this radio station. 'Slache' also appeared in a series of comic strips published in Spirou magazine from 1939 ('Le Grand Voyage de Slache' and in the Flemish version Robbedoes as 'De Groote Reis van Toone').

Shortly before World War II, Antoine launched Slache magazine, in which he criticized Degrelle and the nazi movement. During the War, he played in cabarets. Afterwards, he started the humor weekly Pan with Léo Campion and Jean-Léo. Antoine also produced 'Boby' in Le Soir, and 'Bill & Bull' in Bravo!, and was the founder of the association of humorous artists La Mine Souriante in 1928.

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.
