comic art by Mirjam Vissers

Mirjam Vissers studied to be a teacher, but then thought better of it and went into the magazine business. As editor she got a chance to draw illustrations, which she really enjoyed. Soon she left her job to become a freelance illustrator and comic artist. She has contributed work to VNU magazines, educational publications, and since 1998 to newspaper Gooi- en Eemlander. Influenced by Claire Bretecher, she developed a humorous graphic style, which she employs for her cartoons and comics in magazine Opzij since 2000.

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.
