Krokrodile Comix II, by Mattt Konture

Mattt (Mathieu) Konture made his professional debut in 1984 in the magazines Le Lynx, Vipère, Psikopat, Nerf and Sponge. In 1985, he made the small comic book 'Ruga Zébo Violent,' which was published in the first Patte de Mouche collection of l'A.A.N.A.L., the predecessor of l'Associaton. He also made several stories with the character 'Galopu', that appeared in Réciproquement and Krokodile Comix and were collected in the book 'Souterrain' by Futuropolis.

In 1990, he was one of the founders of l'Association, along with Menu, Stanislas, Killofer, Trondheim and David B. For this organization, he created 'Glofluné Triblonto,' which was published in the new Patte de Mouche collection. At this time, his work was also present in publications like Krokodile, Miettes de Poche and Galopu, and much of this work was collected in 'Printemps, Autommes' by l'Association in 1993. Konture has also published in Jade, La Monstrueuse, Le Jambon Blindé and Lapin, the magazine of l'Association. In 1996, he made 'Ivan Morve' and two years later he produced the Patte de Mouche 'Galopinot' with Lewis Trondheim.

Also for l'Association, he published a second volume of 'Krokodile Comix' as well as 'Tombe (la Veste?)' in the collection Mimolette. In that same collection, he made books like 'Barjouflasque', 'Head Ranger Forever!?' and 'Cinq Heure du Mattt', in 2000 and 2001. Also in 2000, he teamed up with Pierre Druilhe and Guillaume Bouzard to make 'Sponge' for the publishing house Six Pieds Sous Terre. As an illustrator, he colaborates with the record label Gougniaf Mouvement and the magazine Fluide Glacial. Konture finds his graphic inspiration in the underground movements of the 1960 and 1970s. His pages recall the work of Robert Crumb or Marc Caro.

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.
