Manboou, whose real name is Audrey Fasquel, was born in Calais. She is a graduate from the Academy of Fine Arts in Tournai. In 1999 she created the fanzine Freestyle, which she drew completely on her own. After winning a prize with her fanzine, she got in touch with Delcourt publishers. In 2005, she made her album debut at this publisher with 'Fred et Sophie', a comic with two characters she had already created for her fanzine.

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
