Psychoses Toujours, by Lucques

Self-taught artist Lucques saw his first illustrations published in Lui in 1969. That same year, he commenced working for Pilote, making some current-affairs pages as well as the series 'Lucquarnes' (1971-72). Additionally, he did articles and drawings for Privé and Kesselring published his first humour book, 'Le Petit Enlucqué' in 1974. He helped launch Mormoil, and contributed the strip 'Freudaines' to the magazine.

In the mid-1970s, he started working for the magazines l'Écho des Savanes and Fluide Glacial. His stories 'Le Tombeur de Haut' and 'Goldorette', both from L'Écho, were collected in albums by Editions du Fromage and Albin Michel. For Fluide Glacial, he created the series 'Clitounet et Clitounette' and 'Wilbur, l'Indocible Heureux', as well as a relaunch of 'Freudaines', most of which were also collected in books (Audie, Le Cygne).

In 1981, he started publishing his own work, like 'Les Fadas du Zizi' (1981), 'Les Dragueurs' (1982), 'Je Vous Aime' (1982), and the comical erotic 'Encyclopédie Aphrodisiaque' (two volumes under the pseudonym Ian Gallix, 1983). In addition, he did commisions (the book 'Méga-Planning' for Publiart) and the book 'Ralentir, Zone Érogène' for Glénat in 1986. Lucques eventually settled in Miami, Florida, where he works for local magazines and papers.

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.
