Puck Reporter, by Marc Ratal

Marc Ratal has been drawing since a young age. A medical student in 1941, he drew his first comic story with the character 'Puck Reporter', called 'Le Trésor de Baron Goudman'. This was followed by a second story in 1942, 'Vers Kaboul'. Both stories were published in books by Editions Campéador. He then left the comics field to focus on the doctor's profession.

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.
