Smalltown Boy

Born in Hamburg, self-taught artist Andreas Michalke published his first illustrations in the hardcore magazines Trust and Zap in the late 1980s. Playing in a band himself, he combined his two activities by making flyers and posters for other bands. In 1991, he started the autobiographical magazine Artige Zeiten with Minou Zaribaf, that won a prize for Best Fanzine at the 1993 Comic Salon in Hamburg. His 1999 comic 'Smalltown Boy' won the ICOM Independent prize.

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.
