Red Guard Romance, by Jay Kinney

Jay Kinney was part of the 1970s underground comix scene from the beginning. His work first appeared in Bijou Funnies in 1968, and he co-founded the satire of romance comics, Young Lust Comix, with Bill Griffith in 1970. He produced and edited several other publications, such as Occult Laff-Parade in 1973, Cover-up Lowdown with Paul Mavrides in 1977, and Anarchy Comics (1978-1987). He was editorial cartoonist for In These Times in 1979-80, editor of Co-Evolution Quarterly (1983-84) and publisher and editor-in-chief of the esoteric spiritual magazine Gnosis (1985-1999). Most recently, Kinney and Mavrides designed the website for Infinite Matrix, an online science-fiction magazine, and provided illustrations for the fiction at the site.

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.
