Langelot by Frans Mandos

Frans Mandos studied Arts in Tilburg. Until 1944 he often worked together with his brother Kees from their atelier in their parent's house in Tilburg. He has illustrated, and sometimes written, about 11 stories for Uitgeverij Helmond in the mid 1930s. Among these illustrated stories, which can also be seen as comics, were 'Het Raadsel van den Knotwilg', 'De Speeldoos van Langelot', 'Aapje', 'Joop en Toop, de Tweelingen', 'De Toverstaf van Fatsrevot', 'De Firma Bultje en Aapje', 'Pepranoet en zijn Helper', 'Roosmarijntje en het Toverboek', 'Hoe Schors Leerde Toveren' and 'De Bewoners van het Vlashuisje'. Mandos was also an illustrator for Brabantia Nostra magazine, and a well-known glass painter, mural artist and fine artist.

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.
