After some regular art studies, André Beautemps took some courses in making comics from Eddy Paape. After winning a contest held by Lombard, Beautemps started his career in the magazine Tintin. For this magazine he created the series about pilot 'Michael Logan'. At first he wrote the scenarios himself, but soon Jean Van Hamme took over. In 1975 he worked with writer Henri Vernes on 'Le 7e Univers', an album published by Bedescope. In 1978 this talented artist died, leaving the final episode of 'Michael Logan' unfinished.

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.
