The book of Leviathan, by Peter Blegvad

Peter Blegvad is mainly active as a musician and singer-songwriter, but his oblique wit has also found expression in drawing, writing and pedagogy. He has been member of several bands, including the avant-pop band Slapp Happy. Between 1992 and 1999 he published his surreal comic strip 'Leviathan' in The Independent. In 2001 a book collection was published called 'The book of Leviathan'. The beautiful artwork recalls the old American artistic tradition and is reminiscent of the work of Chris Ware. Other comics and illustrations by Blegvad have appeared in The Ganzfeld and Ben Katchor's Picture Story 2.

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.
