Lars Hillersberg was a Swedish artist and satirist. He gave his critical and often provocing vision on Swedish society in his controversial drawings for the magazine PUSS and the Swedish press. He studied at the Kungliga Konsthögskolan in Stockholm from 1961 to 1966 and published his early works in the magazine Konstrevy. Inspired by European satirical magazines like Masacré in France and Simplicissimus in Germany, he founded PUSS in 1968 with Carl Johan De Geer, Karin Frostenon, Lena Svedberg, Ulf Rahmberg and Leif Katz.

The magazine ceased publication in 1974 and Hillersberg subsequently launched Gatskrikan magazine. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Hillersberg drew some controversial caricatures in which he critisized Israel, which caused some debate about whether they were Anti-Semitist or not.

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.
