Digedags, by Gisela Zimmermann

Gisela Zimmermann was born and raised in Bremen. She studied art and attended the same classes as Manfred Schmidt. After completing her studies, she became a press artist in Berlin. She married the illustrator Kurt Zimmermann. When Mosaik turned from quarterly to monthly magazine, she became part of Hannes Hegen's art collective. She was specialized in mass-scenes, and remained active for the magazine after Hegen's departure. Besides working on 'Digedags' and 'Abrafaxe' stories, she worked with writer Lothar Dräger on the Mosaik supplement 'Klaus und Hein'.

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.
