comic art by Markus van der Graaff
"Contrary to popular opinion, he considered himself more of a
brilliant eye-hand coordinator than a humorous cartoonist"

Markus van der Graaff, who signs his comics work simply Markus, studied Dutch, Drawing, Painting & Experimental Techniques and 20th Century History. He made his comics debut in 1998, when his cartoons were published in the VPRO TV-guide. Since then, his work has appeared in several publications, such as newspaper Metro (illustrations), De Provinciale Zeeuwse Courant (weekly comic), Psychologie Magazine (cartoons) and in 'Comix 2000' (a silent strip). In 1998, he also started the comic series 'FaR oUt', in comic magazine Gr'nn.

Series en boeken door Markus op voorraad in de Lambiek Webshop:


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.
