Hotel Nevelzicht by Mark van Herpen

Mark van Herpen published his first comic in a Dutch 1980s comics annual, after participating in a contest by publisher Arboris. In the early 1990s he published in a strip Striptuur, the magazine published by comics shop Haagse Stripshop, and was also present in Jet Magazine of publisher Lombard. He then assisted Minck Oosterveer on both 'Claudia Brücken' and 'Jack Pott' for a period of two years. Van Herpen then lived in Nepal for five years, to do development work. During this period he created his comic 'Hotel Nevelzicht', that was published in Suske en Wiske Weekblad in 1994. Van Herpen worked as a graphic designer for many years before returning to 'Hotel Nevelzicht' for Eppo magazine in 2009. He also makes a monthly cartoon for De Rotonde, a local paper from the town of Eemnes.

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.
