De Verstrooide Professor, by Theo Funke Kupper

Theodorus Franciscus Anton (Theo) Funke Küpper started his career working in advertising, just like his brother Frans. In 1934, he was employed by the publisher De Spaarnestad, for which he made illustrations and comics (at that time called 'picture-stories') for several Catholic children's magazines.

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.
