Cauchemar Americain, by Frederic Garcès

Frédéric Garcès is a professional infographics artist. He had the idea of making a comic for a long time, and after staying in the USA for a year and a half without a job, he commenced working on it. Influenced by artists like Tardi and Chauvel, as well as writers like Paul Auster and John Irving, Garcès outlines a dark view on American society in 'Cauchemar Americain'.

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.
