cartoon by Zak

Cartoonist Jacques Moeraert, who uses the pseudonym Zak, was initially a bookkeeper, but switched to cartooning at the age of 25. Together with his friend Quirit, he published his first cartoons in the satirical magazine De Zwijger. His work has been published in Flemish and Dutch newspapers De Morgen, De Volkskrant, De Limburger and De Groene Amsterdammer magazine. In 1999, he received the Royale Belge Prize for best press cartoon, and in 2000, he won the Ark-prize. His yearly Zak-pocket-agenda is very popular.

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.
