Early Tandra, by Hanther ca 1973

Christopher Lindbergh Hanther, Jr. grew up in rural Memphis and displayed an early talent in drawing. He moved with his family to Knoxville, Tennessee, but his heart always remained with the farmland and open space. Chris Hanther studied advertising art, after which he served in the air force for a short while. Back in civilian life, he moved to New York and started working for comics publisher Marvel. In 1971, Hanther returned to the country and started developing an epic adventure story, 'Tandra', which he self-published in the series 'Critter', first released in 1973. 'Critter' provided him with a platform to distribute his comics, especially 'Tandra'. Over the years, 'Tandra' appeared semi-regularly and acquired a small band of devoted fans. In 1995, Hanther had the oppurtunity to create a website for his comic, and he turned 'Tandra' into a CD-Rom which was released in 2002.

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.
