Egoland, by Olfax

Ivar Gjørup, better known as Olfax, has a degree in classic philology and is a former schoolteacher. He was editor and artist of the University's student newspaper, Montanus. This led to more illustration assignments from 1977 onwards. In 1983, he started his comic strip 'Egoland'. This daily comic, containing cunning political and commentary on everyday human life, was published at first in Information magazine, and later in the much larger Politiken.

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.
