Abelard by Renaud Dillies

Renaud Dillies, born in Lille, got his artistic education at the Saint Luc and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Tournai. He had his apprenticeship with the magazine Spirou, where he drew the backgrounds of Frédéric Jannin's comics and inked Clarke's 'Mélusine'. He combined his pasion of both comics and music in his debut comic, 'Betty Blues', that was published by Paquet publishers in 2003 and won him the prize for best debut at the Angoulême comics festival.

Series en boeken door Renaud Dillies op voorraad in de Lambiek Webshop:


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.
