Adriaan Soeterbroek is a Dutch cartoonist. Born in Pijnacker, he is settled in Alkmaar since 1970. He had his cartoons printed in several publications and made two comic strips for Welzijnsweekblad: 'Café Welwezen' (1978-81) and 'Maarten-Kees' (1981). He self-published two book collections containing these comic strips.

A cartoon he made for the VARA website Joop.nl in 2011 caused national uproar, because it compared rightwing politician Geert Wilder's idea of "harness villages" to the German concentrationcamps of World War II.

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.
