Nard n' Pat, by Jay Lynch

While dreaming of becoming a comic artist, New Jersey artist Jay Lynch noticed that American mainstream comics in the 1960s were dull and on their way back. So Lynch decided to become an underground artist. He published his own comic book, Bijou, which contained work by Skip Williamson, Art Spiegelman, Evert Geradts and Justin Green. But he has also made a considerable amount of comics himself, including famous works like 'Nard 'n' Pat', starring the hip and horny Pat the cat (in The Chicago Seed and later in Bijou, 1967).

He also has contributed to various magazines, such as Cracked and Help!, and other projects (like the Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids for Topps Chewing-gum Company). Jay Lynch is a teacher with the Chicago Art Institute and works as a graphic artist for Topps Chewing-gum Company. In more recent years, he has contributed to several popular comic series, like Topps' 'Zorro' comics and Dark Horse's 'Duckman'.

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.
