Amphogorey, by Edward Gorey

Edward Gorey was an author and illustrator of many books that often have the appearance of children's stories, but are usually much more ominous, even sinister, and yet oddly humorous. Gorey produced three books, which collect in total more than three dozen individual books: 'Amphigorey', 'Amphigorey too' and 'Amphigorey also'. Gorey was on the dark side of the comics form for close to five decades. His name has become synonymous with an approach to cartooning that is both cerebral and disquieting.

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.
