Le Dernier Film by Fernand Wicheler
Le Dernier Film (Le Soir, 15 June 1925)

Fernand Wicheler was a Belgian playwright, screenwriter and actor from Brussels. Besides all this, he was probably also the first to produce a newspaper comic strip series in Belgium. Wicheler was already 47 when Le Soir commenced the weekly publication of his comic strip 'Le Dernier Film' on 18 July 1921.

The strip had text and images seperated and commented on the social and political events of the day. Wicheler also used some of the characters from his stageshows in the strip, such as 'Monsieur Beulemans'. The final strip appeared on 1 May 1926.

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.
