Big Picture, by Lennie Peterson 2002

Lennie Peterson studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. He graduated in 1979, toured playing and teaching music and returned to Boston in 1984 to become an assistant professor at Berklee College. Around this time he created the autobiographical comic 'The Big Picture'. In 1995 he took a leave of absence to devote himself to playing the trombone and self-syndicating his comic strip. In 1999 it was picked up by 75 national newspapers. Being autobiographical, the strip shows a lot of Lennie Peterson (whose appearance changes over the years) himself, and deals a lot with cats, girlfriends and comics in general.

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.
