comic art by Patrice Leconte

Patrice Leconte is mostly known for his filmmaking work. However, before turning to movies, Leconte created comics for the magazine Pilote. From 1970 to 1974 he illustrated various gags and short stories, which already contained the brand of humour he later used in his movies. He was also the author of two long stories, 'La Longue Nuit de Korneblu' and 'Mr Le Censeur aux Champs'. For his comic work, Leconte used a very personal style, with rigid characters, of which the most famous was 'André Nagul'. One album appeared with his work in 1979, 'Nagul & Cie'.

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.
