Jason Paulos is the author of the 'Hairbutt the Hippo Private Eye' comic. Paulos came up with the idea of a half-human-half-hippo detective at art school in 1988. The first story appeared in Rat Race comics a year later. The 'Hairbutt' stories are written by Bodine Amerikah. He also drew for the Australian MAD Magazine.

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
