The Break Out by Anna Bas Backer

Anna Bas Backer is a comic artist and a visual artist from Amsterdam who lives and works in Berlin. She studied at the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam (1999-2003) and at the Rhode Island School of Design, USA (2001-2002). Her career began with large paintings illustrating spaces and places devoid of humans. Whilst she first started experimenting with comics in documentary style drawings, she later went on to use comics to comment on and critize the work she did as an artist. Today she chooses to more fully immerse herself in comic stories and cartoons. She also creates illustrations on commission.

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.
