Mika Mis

Vlastimir (Vlasta) Belkic was a pioneer in Eastern-European comics. Born in Belgrade, he was the creator of the pulp detective 'Hari Vilsa', whose adventures appeared in Nedelja, starting in 1935. It was the first original comics character in Serbian and Yugoslav newspapers. Belkic was also one of the original artists of the Yugoslav version of Mickey Mouse (Mika Miš). He made covers for the publication, as well as several stories featuring Disney's characters Mickey and Donald Duck, around 1936.

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.
