Notre Dame #1
Jean Bastide was born in Aldi. He studied in France before heading to Brussels, Belgium, to enroll at the Saint-Luc Art Institute in 2004. His first break in the field of comics was working with Bernard Yslaire and Vincent Mézil on the 'Hugo & Iris' installments in the 'La Guerre des Sambre' collection between 2005 and 2009. He then teamed up with Robin Recht to create a trilogy based on Victor Hugo's 'Notre Dame de Paris' novel. The first book was published by Glénat in 2012.

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
