Farniente, by Denis Fremond

Born in Le Havre, Denis Frémond started out making paintings and as an actor in the theater. He soon turned to creating comics, and made his first Woody Allen inspired stories for Pilote and Pilote et Charlie in the early 1980s. These works were later collected in four albums by Albin Michel: 'Sentimental', 'Des Filles Formidables', 'Touche pas mon Corps', and 'Je Veux de l'Amour'. At the same time, he joined L'Écho des Savanes, where he created the unorthodox journalist 'Jo Engo' in 1985. He made two long stories featuring the character, drawn in a Clear Line style. In 1991, Albin Michel published his album 'Les Célibataires'. In that same year, he published 'Farniente' at Les Humanoïdes Associés.

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.
