Les Mésaventures de Ludovic, by Rip

Rip was a French illustrator who was mainly active during the 1880s. He drew for magazines like Comodia illustré, L'Eclipse, La Silhouette and La Jeunesse Amusante. He made picture stories for La Caricature, before becoming one of the artists for the picture story prints by Imagerie Quantin in Paris (including 'Les Mésaventures de Ludovic', 'Un projet téméraire'). Quite unusual for his time, Rip's style of experimenting with panel lay-outs resembles that of Winsor McCay in his 'Little Nemo' pages from 15 years later.

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.
