Ghostrider, by Mike Ploog

Mike Ploog was born in Mankato, Minnesota in 1942. While in the military, he started working for Leatherneck magazine. Ploog stands out for his macabre horror stories he did for such titles as 'Wherewolf by Night', 'Frankenstein', 'Ghostrider' 'Conan', 'Planet of the Apes' and 'Creepy' during the 1970s. In his graphic novel 'The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus', Ploog showed the lighter and more nostalgic side of his talent. He has also worked on several other Marvel series. However, Mike Ploog spent most of his career as a designer and storyboard artist in Hollywood.

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.
