comic art by Anna Sommer

Anna Sommer didn't plan to become a comic artist. She studied graphics in Zürich, and found that she wanted to use her drawings to tell stories in her own, personal style. Every one of her panels is like an artwork in itself, evoking a specific atmosphere. Her stories are usually a bit tragic, but in a comical way. Her first graphic novel was 'Damen Dramen', which tells nine wordless stories about women - one of them about a businesswoman who started an affair with the (female) private detective her husband has hired to check on her. Sadly hilarious, Anna's style is a mix between tragicomedy and black humor.

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.
