from La Joie des Enfants (1905)

Maurice Boyer, who mostly signed with Moriss, but also with Mo'Rice, drew for Le Pêle-Mêle from 1895. Later on, he was also present in La Chronique Amusante and Polichinelle. His humorous drawings were made in a geometric style that was very modern at the time. He made comics for Le Bon Vivant from 1902, and later on for American Illustré, Le Cri-Cri, Les Belles Images, La Joie des Enfants, L'Epatant, Cadet Revue and Ololé, until the mid-1940s.

Moriss was also one of the regular contributors to comics magazine Diabolo Journal, which appeared from 1906 until 1922/23. He drew the story 'Une Expédition Fort Simple' in 1912. Boyer was also a music hall comedian, as well as an actor in plays like 'Les Vampires' by Louis Feuillade in 1915.

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.
