from La Semaine de Suzette, by Clérice

Charles Clérice was born in Buenos Aires into a family of Normandy origins. The family moved to France after the death of father Clérice in 1881. Charles found employment as an illustrator and lithographer. The signature of Clérice appeared regularly in the early issues of La Semaine de Suzette in the 1910s, with comics featuring Arabs and Persians in the fairytale atmosphere of '1001 Nights'.

Charles was sometimes helped by his brother Justin in the production of posters. These posters are mostly signed "Clérice Frères". The Clérice Frères also published two books of 'L'Affaire du Courrier de Lyon' at the SPE in 1938 (text by Aleyrac).

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.
