comic art by Paul Smith

Paul Smith came to the comics profession from animation. The influence of his animation period is still visible in his work through its simple, elegant figure work and clear layouts. Although he was only on the 'X-Men' comic for about a year, he is one of the favorite artists among fans. From 1996, Smith works with James Robinson on the 'Leave it to Chance' comic under DC Wildstorm's Homage Comics imprint. Other titles he worked on are 'Nexus', 'Dr Strange' and 'The Iron Man'.

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.
