Les Sarcophages du Complexe, by Mohamed Nadrani
Les Sarcophages du Complexe (2005)

Mohammed Nadrani was born in the Rif Mountains. As a young man he was active in a Marxist-Leninist association and was arrested during the student protests of 1976. His artistic adventure began when he found a piece of charcoal in his cell, which eventually lead to the publication of a 48-page-long comic book titled 'Les Sarcophages du Complexe' about the Moroccan "years of lead" (the dictatorship under King Hassan II). Today, Nadrani works as a cartoonist for the Arab daily newspaper Al-Ayyam. In 2008, he published his second book, 'L'Emir Ben Abdelkrim', about the Rif War against the Spanish (1920-22).

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.
