Outland, by Berke Breathed

Berkeley Breathed, a 1980 University of Texas graduate, created the immensely popular comic strips 'Bloom County' and 'Outland', which appeared in thousands of newspapers around the globe between 1980 and 1995. In 1987, his strip 'Bloom County' earned him a Pulitzer Prize in editorial cartooning. After creating numerous children's books and animated film projects, Breathed returned to the comic pages in 2003 with 'Opus', a Sunday-only strip starring his most beloved character.

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.
