Billy the Cat, by Péral

Alain Perwez (better known as Péral) studied fine arts in Liège. He also studied at the Saint-Luc in the same city. He entered the comics field with the help of Olivier Saive, doing among others coloring work. He then settled in Luxembourg, where he worked in the animation field for three years (among other on the series 'Crobs'). Back in Belgium, he became an assistant to Daniel Kox on the series 'L'Agent 212' for a while. He also began illustrating children's books. He took over the artwork of the series 'Billy the Cat' from Stéphane Colman in 2002.

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.
