Het Spookschip by François Vanhamme

François Vanhamme was a Belgian painter, who also ventured into comics and illustrations in the 1940s. He was present in the Walloon magazine Spirou and its Flemish counterpart Robbedoes from the start in 1938, illustrating text stories that appeared under the label 'Anciens Belges'. In 1941 and 1942 he drew the comic story 'Le Navire Fantôme' ('Het Spookschip').

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.
