Trigan Empire by Oliver Frey

Oliver Frey was born in Switzerland, but has lived in the UK for many years. He studied film at the London School of Film Technique and began drawing comic strips to earn a living, working for Fleetway's picture libraries. After briefly running a film company in Switzerland, Frey returned to the UK and worked as a full-time comic strip artist and illustrator. He drew two of his favourite boyhood comic strips, 'The Trigan Empire' (1976-77) and 'Dan Dare' (1982-83). He co-founded Newsfield Publications with his brother, Franco, providing hundreds of covers and illustrations for their many computer and horror magazines. He later co-founded Thalamus Publishing.

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.
