Aliben Zebra by Joop Bonarius
Aliben Zebra onder de Jappen (Utrechts Nieuwsblad, 30/8/1946)

Joop Bonarius was a Dutch illustrator and comic artist from Arnhem. He has made illustrations for postcards, and is the author of the comic strip 'Aliben Zebra onder de Jappen' that ran in Utrechts Nieuwsblad from 23 August 1946 to 20 December 1946. This comic strip about an antropomorphic zebra air force pilot fighting the Japanese was one of the first new comic strips to appear in the post-war issues of the Utrecht newspaper, but it possibly also ran in other (regional) newspapers.

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.
