Sex and Death, by Roger Brand

Roger Brand grew up in San Francisco's East Bay. He drew his first lines as a comic book artist as an assistant for the legendary Wally Wood and Gil Kane from 1964 to 1969. Then he joined the underground comix family, making cartoons for 'Gothic Blimp Works', the short-lived, all-cartoon supplement of New York's East Village Other newspaper. Complications associated with alcoholism cut Roger's life short, but his highly accomplished style, in the tradition of the best EC comic art, lives on in scores of publications, including 'Creepy', 'Witzend', 'Tales of the Leather Nun', 'Insect Fear', 'Real Pulp Comics', 'Young Lust' and 'Tales of Sex and Death'.

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.
