Mac Fly, by Jean Barbaud

Jean Barbaud took courses in drawing and afterwards he started working in the illustration field. He worked a lot in the animation field, like on the famous 'Inspector Gadget' and 'Le Monde Fou de Tex Avery' cartoon series (from 1977). For more then 20 years, he drew aviation cartoons for the Le Fana de l'Aviation monthly magazine. His cartoons for this magazine were collected in the album 'Gueules de Zings' by Vents d'Ouest. In the early 1980, he drew first comic pages in Sapristi. With Thierry Cailleteau, he published the aviation comic 'Pur Zinc' in 1993. A specialist in aviation, Barbaud teamed up with writer Fred Duval to create the 'Mac Fly' series at Delcourt in the 1990s.

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.
