Jan Lul en de Flauwe Cultuur, by Bram Vermeulen

Bram Vermeulen, mainly known as a brilliant song- and textwriter, was born in The Hague, The Netherlands in 1946. He studied psychology in Amsterdam and performed as a comedian together with Freek de Jonge in the music and comedy show 'Neerlands Hoop in Bange Dagen'. He became an all-round stage-artist, performing, directing, writing and singing, but he also painted and made comics in the early 1970s. He drew strips like 'Gé Dubbelkluts' and 'Gijs Goochem' for magazine Plus (1972-1974), and made 'Jan Lul en de Flauwe Cultuur', a promotional comic for Culture for Youngsters in The Netherlands. This comic was banned in the Roman Catholic South of Holland because of its use of swearwords. Vermeulen continued to work as a solo artist on new music and theatre productions, and passed away from heart failure while on holiday in Tuscany, Italy, in 2004.

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.
