Les Aventures de Pat, by Gerardel

Gérardel was one of the original artists that filled the early issues of Pat... épate, the magazine of the National Association of Patronages that started in 1946. He was the author of the title comic, 'Les Aventures de Pat', and several other stories, such as 'Le Mystère de la Caverne'.

At the time, the magazine was apparently made on a more amateur basis, as can be seen by the work of the other artists, who signed with names like Raimo, Hello, Frédéric, Jyssé and Déa. It got a more professional feel when it started to reprint stories from Coeurs Vaillants, Bayard, Fripounet et Marisette and the Italian magazine Il Vittorioso.

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.
