comic art by Marco Kuijpers

Marco Kuipers formed AAARCH!!! Comics Amsterdam, together with Marcel de Jong. The two of them became good friends at the IVKO (Individueel Voortgezet Kunstzinnig Onderwijs), where they almost immediately started working on comix like 'Pisa' and 'Magnum'. All the while, Marcel and Marco produced impressive amounts of graphic work: dozens of magazine covers, comix (Incognito, P.O.S.S.E.), murals and, most of all, freestyle graphix.

The year 1999 brought AAARCH!!! Comics their first Dutch comic with 'Kwaad Bloed' in the Incognito series. De Jong and Kuipers continued their collaboration with 'Seelendämmerung', in 2001. Later on, Kuipers continued to work under the AAARCH!!! label on his own. Remarkable for their detailed and romantic counterculture images, the AAARCH!!! team builds on the Dutch underground comix tradition, most notably the work of its godfather, Peter Pontiac.

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.
