Julie, Claire, Cécile, by Sidney

After his studies at the Institut Saint-Luc in Brussels, Sidney (pseudonym of Paul Ramboux) joined the magazine Tintin, where he made his first comics. He also worked for Spirou under pseudonyms like Kovak or Malois. There, he illustrated about 60 'Belles Histoires de l'Oncle Paul', as well as a long biography of 'Marco Polo'. After that, he made several short stories with writer Jacques Acar about the American Civil War, for Record magazine. In 1982 he returned to Tintin with his series 'Julie, Claire, Cécile', which he made with scenario writer Bom.

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.
