Lijntrekker, by Jan Bouman (1952)

Jan Bouman was the illustrator of the section 'Lijntrekker', that appeared in De Volkskrant the 1950s. In this section, Boumaar searched Holland for "curiosities and things worth knowing, monuments and fragments, celebrities and secrecies, events and depositions, headings and life bulletins," as the subtitle of the 1960 book collection states. Bouman's other serial about Dutch monuments, appeared in Cobouw between 1957 and 1971.

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.
