Les Débrouillards, by Jacques Goldstyn

Fascinated by comics and drawing since his early childhood, Jacques Goldstyn chose a scientific career and studied geology at the University of Montréal. He combined his education with his hobby and became the principal illustrator of the magazine Hebdo-Science in 1980. Later on, he also began the series 'Irréalité Virtuelle' in this magazine. In 1982, he joined the scientific magazine Je Me Petit-Débrouille. He became the staff artist, and made illustrations with 'Les Petits Débrouillards'. He also drew comics with the characters, as well as a new series 'La Bande à Beppo'. He created several side-characters for 'Les Petits Débrouillards', and one of them, 'Van l'Inventeur' even became popular in China.

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.
