Hatter M by Sami Makkonen
Hatter M. #3

Sami Makkonen is a Finnish comic artist, who has published most of his fantasy and horror work in the USA. He studied fine art painting in Tarttu, Estonia, and his career as a comic artist took off when he won the fantasy-themed competition run by the Finnish Comics Professionals organisation with his work 'Pelastus ja anteeksianto' ('Salvation and Forgiveness', 2007).

Based in Helsinki, Makkonen began working for American publishers after they noticed his work on the internet. His US credits include books such as volumes 2 and 3 of the 'Hatter M.' graphic novels (2009 and 2010, scripts by Frank Beddor), 'Deadworld: Slaughterhouse' (2011, script by Gary Reed) and Blue (2008, script by Elizabeth Genco).

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.
