Rose Profond, by Michel Pirus

Michel Pirus was born in Thionville in 1962. He studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Reims, but this became a fiasco. After his military service, he started contributing to magazine Metal Hurlant. Together with Dionnet, he created his debut 'Rose Profond', published by Albin Michel in 1989. He met Mezzo and they teamed up on a series of dark comic stories, published in the Frank Margerin Présente series, and also on 'Deux Tueurs' for Éditions Delcourt. On his own, Pirus created 'Plip', about a rectangular planet, in which he used a graphic style that became very popular. He has also worked together with Charlie Schlingo, with whom he created 'Canetor' for magazine Picsou and Ferraille Illustré.

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.
