Corps à Corps, by Grégory Mardon

After a short career in animation, working on the movies of Belgian comic hero 'Paryrus', Grégory Mardon took the decision to become purely a comic artist. His debut album is a personal story about his grandfather: 'Vagues à l'Âme', published in 2000 by Les Humanoïdes Associés. It is a somewhat melancholic homage to a man who used to be a Steve McQueen type of guy. With 'Vagues à l'Âme', Mardon won the Prix du Lion for young comic artists, which is an initiative of the Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée in Brussels.

His second album, 'Cycloman', is a superhero co-operation with Charles Berberian ('Monsieur Jean'). Shortly after this book, Mardon was asked by Dupuis to make a one-shot for their respectable collection Aire Libre: this graphic novel called 'Corps à Corps' was published in March 2003. It is a fresco of modern life, telling the stories of different people meeting each other and making an unexpected new reality. Mardon works in a typically French style, influenced by artists like Etienne Davodeau and Jacques de Loustal.

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.
