Dampierre, by Pierre Legein

Born in Brussels, Pierre Legein spent his early childhood in Canada and The Netherlands. He began studying medicines at age 18, and he followed art courses at the same time. He studied journalism for two years, before he focused completely on drawing. He took courses by Eddy Paape, where he met Didier Crisse. Legein entered the fields under the guidance of Crisse. He began doing storyboards and advertising arts. His first comics work was assisting MiTacq on an episode of 'La Patrouille des Castors'. After a brief appearance in Hello Bédé, he took over the artwork of the series 'Dampierre' from Eric in 1994 (text by Yves Swolfs).

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.
