Walter Moers is one of the most successful and popular present-day German comics artists. Born in Mönchengladbach, he started publishing his work in 1984. Since 1985, he was been active as an author of children's books, making among others 'Professor Schimauski' and 'Käpt'n Blaubär', as well as the 'Zamonien' novel series.

Most of his comics are first published in the satirical magazines Kowalski and Titanic. His best known comics characters are 'Der Alter Sack', a sarcastic old man, and the controversial 'Adolf, der Nazisau', about an Adolf Hitler in present-day society.

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.
