comic art by Abdelaziz Mouride

Abdelaziz Mouride is a Morrocan journalist/artist who was a political prisoner from 1974 to 1984. Mouride was a founding member of the extreme leftwing movement of March 23 from the late 1960s. The experience of being imprisoned inspired him to create the comic book 'On affame bien les Rats'. Mouride drew most of the pages in prison and smuggled them out page by page to expose conditions of detention for Moroccon prisoners. Originally written with Arabic titles and speech balloons, it was published pseudonymously in France in 1982 as 'Fi 'akhsha'i baladi' and subtitled 'On Political Prison in Morocco'. In Morocco, it didn't appear until 2000.

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.
