Les Noces d'Arcot

Guy Nadeau, best known as Golo, started his career in 1973, illustrating a news section for the music magazine Best. Two years later, he illustrated for several Egyptian newspapers. In 1979, he hooked up with writer Frank Reichert, with whom he created stories for the comics magazine Charlie Mensuel. Their work has been collected in albums such as 'Ballades pour un Voyou' (Ed. du Square, 1979), 'Same Player Shoots Again' (Ed. du Square, 1982) and 'Rampeau' (Futuropolis, 1982). In addition, Golo and Frank were present in L'Echo des Savanes with 'Le Bonheur dans le Crimé', and in the second series of Charlie Mensuel with 'Les Noces d'Argot'. For À Suivre, they made 'Variante du Dragon'. In this magazine, Golo also illustrated 'Mendiants et Orgueilleux', based on the oeuvre of Egyptian novellist Albert Cossery.

Golo subsequently made a series of short stories about bullfighting, which were collected in album by Éditions Sketch ('La Taverne des Souvenirs Imaginaires', 2003). In the mid-1990s, Golo settled in Egypt, and has worked for the Egyptian press since. He also contributed to the collective album 'L'Association en Egypte' (L'Association, 1998), and appeared in L'Association's Comix 2000 anthology. In 2001, he produced 'Made in Taïwan' for Éditions du Pigeonnier, a book published in French and Chinese. In 2003, he adapted another novel by Cossery, 'Les Couleurs de l'Infamie' for the collection Poisson Pilote of Dargaud.

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.
