Ludo by Pierre Bailly

Pierre Bailly was born in Algeria, but he soon moved to Belgium. He studied at the comics section of the Saint-Luc Institute in Brussels, under Pierre Pourbaix and Marc Sevrin. There, he met Vincent Mathy, with whom he did a small editorial project. He then studied graphics in La Cambre and published his first comic with the independent publisher Rêve-en-Bulles in 1993 ('Anguille Crue').

Adamgorok by Pierre Bailly

With Denis Lapière, he had a brief appearance in Spirou with 'La Baleine de Gaana' (1994), which was followed by the album 'La Saison des Anguilles' at Dargaud (1996). Bailly and Lapière then launched the children's comic 'Ludo'. While Bailly draws the adventures of 'Ludo', Vincent Mathy provides the art for the virtual world of 'Inspecteur Castar', Ludo's favourite comic character. In a more adult fashion, Bailly and Lapière made 'Adamgorok' for the Aire Libre collection in 1993. In 2007, Bailly teamed up with Céline Fraipont to create 'Petit Poilu' for the collection Puceron.

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.
