The Upturned Stone, by Scott Hampton

Scott Hampton was born in 1959 in High Point, North Carolina. Just like his elder brother Bo, he started a career in comics. Scott's first publication was the six-page 'Godfather Death', in Epic Illustrated in 1984. From then on, he has done an impressive number of comics in his distinct watercolor style. Some titles are 'Pigeons From Hell', 'Tapping the Vein', 'Books of Magic', 'Hellraiser' and 'The Upturned Stone'. His graphic style established a new genre in comics, a genre also employed by artists like Bill Sienkiewicz and Dave McKean.

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.
