comic art by Matt Wagner

Matt Wagner began his career when he created 'Mage', which was published by Comico Comics in 1984. Matt Wagner tells the story of Kevin Matchstick, a young listless man who discovers that he is a hero, and therefore must battle creatures and forces of mythological origin on Earth. In the back of the issues of his comic 'Mage', Wagner began a story-line about criminal mastermind/assassin/anti-hero Hunter Rose, also known as 'Grendel'. After a single short book and several separate short stories about Grendel, the series spun out into a 50-issue epic. Wagner also worked on 'Sandman Mystery Theatre', the 'Batman/Grendel' team-up and several other Batman stories.

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.
