Selfportrait, by Eirik Ildahl

Eirik Ildahl has written numerous scripts for established comics such as 'Donald Duck' and 'The Phantom'. He has also created a number of his own comics. Some of the titles he created with other artists are 'Solruns Saga' (illustrated by Bjørn Ousland) and 'Herman Storm' (illustrated by Jean-Yves Mitton and Enrique Villagran). From the mid-eighties to the present, Eirik has mainly written screenplays. One of them, the black-comedy thriller 'Head Above The Water' (1996), was remade for an American audience. Together with Arild Midthun and Terje Nordberg, he created the daily strip 'Dad and Dorothy', which was first published in May 1997. Eirik lives in Oslo, Norway, with his wife, two kids, a cat and a dog.

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.
