De Comeback van De Fret, by Alex Wesselink

Alex Wesselink got his degree at the Art Academy in Arnhem, with a focus on comics. He draws and paints for several publishers and gives workshops in comics and painting for children. Two books of his comic 'De Comeback van De Fret' were published by Silvester comics in 2003 and 2005. Wesselink made this comic about the comeback of a 1970s rock artist with Yke Schotanus. Together with Pasqual Merton, he made the taxi comic 'Afzetters' in Myx.

He also does comics and illustrations in commission, such as the 2009 booklet 'Wessel Wachter' for the Railway Pension fund. Wesselink has experimented with 3D illustration and e-Comics, like the iPad app he developed for his comic 'Afzetters'. He is a bass player in several bands, varying from jazzrock to tango and salsa. As a fine artist, he makes large paintings for stageplays and music shows, as well as free work.

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.
