Jommeke 102 - De vampier van Drakenburg
Flemish artist Hugo De Sterk was the longtime assistant of Jef Nys on the 'Jommeke' comic. Prior to this, in the early 1970s, he worked in Erik Vandemeulebroucke's Berchem-based studio on artwork for the German market. He joined Studio Nys around 1972, where he initially worked as a clean-up artist from Nys' sketches. He later became one of the main artists of 'Jommeke' stories for newspaper Het Volk, participating in the creation of about hundred albums over a period of thirty years. Together with artists like Gerd van Loock and Philippe Delzenne, he worked in Nys' studios in Antwerp until its closure in the 1990s. He continued to draw at the offices of Het Volk until his retirement in 2002.

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.
