La Contessa by Herval
La Contessa

After finishing his exams, Hervé Nau (Herval) moved from his native Rouen to Paris to study Modern Literature. He did his first artwork through a communication agency called Anaconda, where he was modelmaker, roughman and artistic director. He also joined an artists' collective called BD Clip, where he teamed up with Jean-Luc Belin to create the children's comic 'Captain Pirate' for Nucléa in 2000.

Then came the humorous series of pin-up illustrations with Erroc for Bamboo called 'Drôles de Pin-Up' in 2005, before working with Yann on the series about weapon master 'Tiffany' (two books for Delcourt in 2006-2007). He made the humour comic 'Marny' with Axelle Laffont for Hugo BD in 2009 and started the thriller series 'La Contessa' with Crisse for Drugstore in 2011.

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.
