Toxine, by Roger Licot

Roger Licot was born in Brussels, Belgium, and left Europe at the age of 20 to settle in New York City. He spent many years there as a freelance cartoonist for major national magazines such as Cosmopolitan, TVGuide, Playboy and many more.

Licot moved to California in the 1980s where he also started to work in the advertising field (notably at the famous GBS agency in San Francisco) and at the same time he created two graphic novels ('Toxine' 1 and 2) for Last Gasp, and created many illustrations for the San Francisco Chronicle, working mainly with pen and ink, and began to work with digital images, eroticism, realism and urban themes using brushes and paints.

Series and books by Roger Licot in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:


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.
