Comic art by Jukka Tilsan

Jukka Tilsa started his career in the early 1980s by publishing a comic book called 'Zärpä', that has been an inspiration for Finnish comic absurdists since. Tilsa however left the comics field and turned to farming for a decade. He was back in the 1990s and since then he has published over 10 books, starting with 'Zärmikkäimmät' in 1994.

Further titles include 'Potaattien yö' (1997), 'Päin heiniä' (1999), 'Poutaa Japanissa' (2001), 'Ketsuppi on punaista, Supermauno' (2003), 'Zoppaa ja zärvintä' (2004), 'Ilma-autolla Kaliforniaan' (2005), 'Neron-leimauxia' (2006) and 'Tupelon tuplaseriffi' (2008). He is specialized in creating short, naive, and linguistically experimental stories.

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.
