Malek Sliman, by Richard Dimartino

Richard Dimartino worked at an animation studio for two and a half year as a story-board artist. There, he worked together with Bruno Bessadi. Eventually, Dimartino and Bessadi turned to comics, cooperating on the fanzine Kérozène and founding the Zarma studios. He created the series 'Malek Sliman'. After meeting the scenarist Bruno Falba at a festival, he further developed this series, that appears at Vents d'Ouest from 2000. In 2004, he began the series 'Outre Tombe' with scriptwriter Jean and Simon Léturgie.

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.
