Christmas card by Luuk Smeets (2007)

Luuk Smeets is the brother of artist Mark Smeets. Together, they made the comic magazine Venlo International in the 1990s, for which Luuk made the comic 'Huub & Hay'. After the death of his brother Mark, Luuk continued the magazine on his own, in a more naive style.

Series and books by Luuk Smeets in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:


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.
