THB, by Paul Pope
THB (1999)

Paul Pope was one of the promising young comic artists to emerge in the 1990s. Born in Bowling Grun, Ohio, Pope got his interest in European comics through Heavy Metal magazine. He began his own label, Horse Press, in the early 1990s and self-published his first graphic novel under the pseudonym Ira Rubin, 'Sin Titulo'. This was followed by 'The Ballad of Doctor Richardson' in 1993.

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.
