Charlepoeng by Luc de Ro

Luc de Ro, whose real name is Robert Berghmans, is mainly a painter, whose surrealistic and symbolic works were related to actuality. He made illustrations for postcards and posters, and for the magazines Ons Volkske, Kuifje, Onder-Ons, De Volksmacht, Marsch, De Werker, Hernieuwen, De Standaard, Het Volk and De B.J.B.'er. For De Volksmacht, he made the comic 'Charlepoeng', about the legendary Flemish Brabant Brigand, in 1953. He also made the short strip 'Uit Maria's Leven' in Doorbraak in 1954. Berghmans was one of the innovators of the Flemish graphical art of the 1950s.

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.
