Snake 'n' Bacon by Michael Kupperman

Michael Kupperman made a comic called 'Up all Night', then later the comic book called 'Snake 'n' Bacon's Cartoon Cabaret' by Harper Collins Publishers (2000) and participated in the 'Blood Orange' and 'Legal Action comix' anthologies. He is also an illustrator for the New Yorker, New York Times and Seattle newspaper The Stranger, as well as Heavy Metal magazine. He also does cartoons for TV Fun House. Kupperman's look and themes are decidedly retro, like comics of the 1940s or 1950s. His comics are about surrealism, absurdity, and sending up pop culture via deliberate, deadpan stupidity.

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.
