Pilotorama, by Henri Dimpre

After being in the military for a while, Henri Dimpre turned to illustration in the early 1930's. He made illustrations for Le Rire, Marius and Cadet Rousselle. He also took on comics, which he made for Jeudi (1934) and Jean-Pierre (1938). After the War, in 1955, Dimpre created the character 'Slim Galaway' with writer Lucien Bornert in Jocko et Poustiquet. He illustrated most of the early 'Pilotoramas', written by Charlier, in Pilote magazine from 1959.

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.
