In 2014 the publishing house Sherpa released De Jonge's debut graphic novel 'De Papieren Tijger', about a king, a queen, and an artist that has to save their royal marriage. De Jonge had been working for three years on this modern fairytale, that not only stars the spitting image of Dutch King and Queen Willem-Alexander and Maxima, but also a score of other famous Dutch personalities.

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.
