Harry Dickson, by Pascal J. Zanon

After the early death of his Italian immigrant parents, Pascal J. Zanon was forced to take on several odd jobs to earn a living. His passion for graphic art led him to get assignments for drawing sports caricatures and illustrations for historical articles. He met Christian Vanderhaeghe, editor-in-chief of publishing company Art et B.D., who encouraged Zanon to make a comic series. This resulted in the comic series of 'Harry Dickson', based on the famous series by Jean Ray. After first appearing in magazine Charlie Mensuel, the rest of the series was published directly in album format.

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.
