Boerke, by Pieter De Poortere

Pieter De Poortere studied illustration at the Sint-Lucas in Ghent. He contributed cartoons to magazine Humo, and made his comic debut in 2000 with 'Boerke'. An album appeared in 2001, and it was awarded the Dutch Stripschapspenning for its original combination of naive graphic style and cruel jokes. Pieter De Poortere also made the theater/comic play 'K.A.K.' in 2002, together with actor Han Coucke and composer Joris Schoenmaekers. 'Boerke' has also appeared in an english edition, titled 'Dickie'.

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.
