De Ontbrekende Schakel, by Picha

Jean-Paul Walravens, who works under the name Picha, is a Belgian artist and animator who is best known for his satirical and provocative 1975 film 'Tarzoon, de Schande van de Jungle'. He worked as an artist for magazines like Pan, Hara Kiri, Lampoon, La Libre Belgique and the New York Times from 1960. In the same fashion as 'Tarzoon', Picha has made the films 'De Ontbrekende Schakel' (1980) and 'De Big Bang' (1987). He has also made several short animation films for television, including 'Zoolympics', 'Zoo Cup' and 'Les Jules... Chienne de Vie'. A comics version of 'De Ontbrekende Schakel' was published in the Flemish magazine Spetters in 1981.

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.
