Hans Schliessmann was an Austrian illustrator. Born in Mainz, Germany, he moved to Austria with his family when still a child in 1857. He started publishing in Humoristischen Blättern in 1874, and in Kikeriki from 1880. He also drew for the weekly Wiener Luft during the 1880s, while also contributing drawings and picture stories for Fliegende Blätter from Munich. He was especially noted for his drawings about everyday life in Vienna, that he published in magazines as well as an installment of the 'Österreichischen Monarchie in Wort und Bild' encyclopedia. His favorite characters were musicians, sportsmen and soldiers.

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.
