Unser Schumi, by Kim Schmidt

Kim Schmidt, a German cartoonist and comics artist, published his first works in several fanzines. He broke off two studies (architecture and teaching profession), and began to work as an independent comics author. His preferential topic is the life in the north German coastal plain, as can be seen in his 'Local Heroes' cartoon collections. In addition, he has drawn "cartoon maps" of Hedwig-Holzbein, Deutschlandkarte, Niedersacksen, Nordrhein-Vandalen and Bayern.

Since 1983, he is the author of the comic strip 'Öde', which is published in Moin Moin and collected in books by Flying Kiwi. For Carlsen Verlag, he cooperated with author Lutz Mathesdorf on the albums 'Unser Schumi' and 'Kims Comiczeichenkurs'. Also for Carlsen, he makes the historic series 'Störtebeker' in cooperation with Patrick Wirbeleit since 2004.

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.
