Comic art by Marko Turunen

Marko Turunen, who studied sculpting, is a Finnish comic artist specialized in sketching a surreal world in which science-fiction clichés blend in easily with pop culture, violent superheroes and everyday tasks.

In 'Tiskipäiväkirja' ('The Dishwashing Diary’, 2002) Turunen observed daily life by illustrating the dishes that had to be washed every day. 'Kuolema kulkee kintereillä' ('Death Walks on its Hind Legs', 2003) maps out the everyday existence of superheroes living in a flat on a housing estate. 'Pohja' ('The Ground', 2003) is about a childhood in which everything is odd. 'Lihat puntarissa' ('Flesh on the Line', 2007) features newspaper clippings from his father's career as a wrestler.

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.
