Die Vagabunden, by Flip Fermin

Flip Fermin was a promising artist, but unfortunately his talents never came to bloom. After his study at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, Fermin came in contact with the artists of 'Tante Leny' (Swarte, Pontiac). Although he was very influenced by the underground comix and classical newspaper comics, the few stories he did were for children's magazines - one page of 'Robur & Pennekamp' for Mickey Maandblad and a short story of 'Katoen & Pinball' for Jippo.

Besides being editor of the magazine Inkt, which lasted for seven issues (0 through 6), his illustrations and a short strip appeared in the Bussumse Courant and 'Tante Leny Presenteert'. Fermin saw himself as a comix artist "maudit". Two years after his death in 1994, an exhibition of his work was held at the comic fair in Haarlem.

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.
