Nuri Kurtcebe is a prominent Turkish cartoonist and novelist, who was born in Muğla. He enrolled at the Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in 1970 and was for many years a contributor to Girgir magazine. He worked under the guidance of grandmaster Oguz Aral, and is the creator of 'Gaddar Davut' (1971), a character from the Seljuq Empire.
By 1985 he created the primitive hero 'Mokok' for a daily feature in the newspaper Hürriyet. He turned to drawing in a realistic style in a later stage of his career, like for the book he made with the famous Turkish poet Nazim Hikmet called 'Kuvayi Milliye' (2014).

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
