Floris Jansen, who published under the name Wilprand, was the artist of several small comic books (so-called "beeldromans") at the publishing house ATH in Rotterdam. He drew the collections 'Episode Editie' (5 books in 1947 and 1948) and the series 'Havenkwartier' (3 books in 1952). He also drew 'Boeddha op Borneo' in the 'Wolvenserie' (2 books in 1947, published by Johnny van Wolferen).

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
