From Tintin, by Jean Torton 1965

Jean Torton started drawing for the magazine Tintin in 1962. For this magazine he created numerous short stories and the historical comics 'Les Conquérants du Mexique' and 'Cortés à Mexico'. While still working for Tintin, he collaborated on the 'Astérix' and 'Tintin' animated movies at the end of the sixties. During the seventies and eighties, he turned towards adult comics, for which he used the pseudonym Jéronaton. Torton started out at Métal Hurlant with 'Champakou', 'L'Oeuf du Monde' and 'Les Amazones'. For the last couple of years, he has been applying himself to a hyperrealistic style, which can be seen in works such as 'La Fresque Biblique' and 'Yeshoua, la Promesse du Royaume'.

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.
