Maigret, by Frank Brichau

Frank Brichau is the artist of the comics series about Simenon's 'Maigret' character. His first album, 'Lucas: La Machination' appeared at Deligne publishers in 1984. Brichau soon found his own style, a mix between realism and the Clear Line. He also cooperated with Loup Durand and André-Paul Duchâteau on the 'TNT' series. Brichau has assisted Tibet on the backgrounds and coloring of 'Ric Hochet' and 'Chick Bill'. He teamed up with writer Odile Reynaud in the early 1990s to produce the 'Maigret' adaptations.

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.
