New Wave Comics by Mark Marek

Mark Marek studied at the University of Texas in Austin. He plies the border between primitive and savage in his artwork and between underground and mainstream in his markets. 'New Wave Comics' (Manhattan Design, 1983), 'Hercules among the North Americans' (Viking Design, 1986) and 'Dirty Father Harry' (2004) are a few of the books he published. His work has appeared in National Lampoon, High Times and Rolling Stone. He has illustrated album covers for Cyndi Lauper and the Rolling Stones; and he has done animation for a Lauper video and McDonalds. He lives in New Jersey with his first wife and two kids.

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.
