Allez Raconte, by Jose Parrondo

José Parrondo was born in Liège, and began to draw at an early age. He studied photography, and got in touch with a lot of artists and painters. Parrondo started out publishing in small fanzines, and his work was featured on several expositions. He eventually joined the publishing house Le Lézard, where he met Lewis Trondheim. Together with Trondheim, he began 'Papa Raconte' (or 'Allez Raconte'), a series of bedtime stories, drawn in a minimalistic style. Parrondo also contributes to Lapin (L'Association), Picoti, Toupie and Les Aventuriers (Milan). L'Association published Parrondo's books 'Olibirius', 'La Lune, la Bouche d'Egout et la Flague d'Eau' and 'Parrondo Poche'.

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.
