Troubadour, by Michel Crespin

Michel Crespin started his career in 1977 in the French science-fiction magazine Métal Hurlant. A couple of years later, he created his first big comic, 'Armalite 16', a typical post-apocalyptic story. During his career he used more and more watercolor techniques, which can be seen in 'Troubadour', his series situated in the Middle Ages. After one-shots like 'Faust' and 'L'Évangile de Marc' he made 'Élie', a venture into manga for the Japanese market, which was also published by Casterman for the French market.

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.
