La Machine Infernale, by Frederic

Frédéric was, together with Gérardel, one of the more productive artists for the early issues of Pat... épate, the magazine of the National Association of Patronages that started in 1946. In a somewhat amateur style, he illustrated stories like 'Atom-Boy au Pôle Sud' and 'La Machine Infernale', as well as gag strips with 'Patillet'.

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.
