comic art by Chris Crielaard

Chris Crielaard was born in the South of Holland in 1971. From a very early age, he was fascinated by the occult and sadistic. He developed this into a comics style which blends his interests in Samurai culture, freemasonry, 'A Clockwork Orange', and the works of Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri, HR Giger and Gregory Dark. He is part of "The Lost Comics Tribe", a group exhibition with artists Marcel Ruijters, Mike Diana, Jakob Klemencic and Matthias Lehmann, in the Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht at the end of 2002. His work has been called 'Apocalyptic Necroerotik fantasies for a new generation'.

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.
