The Little Barber
Vadim Lazarkevich was born in the region of Kiev. He learned the art profession at the St. Petersburg Art Academy, and moved to Bulgaria in 1920. He was a children's book illustrator, who also did comic-related artwork, such as the 1940s story 'Vesel Putniks Balon' and 'The Little Barber' in Chuden Sviat.

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.
