Rik Lok

Expert Comics

As a child, I quickly learned to tell the difference between first editions, reprints and special issues.

Rik Lok has collected comics since he was a boy and, in his own words, only learned to read properly by devouring comics. He learned very early on how to quickly tell the difference between first editions, reprints and special issues. He was fascinated and started trading and selling in order to expand and improve his collection. In the meantime, Rik was also asked to appraise and purchase comics for a specialty comic shop. He has written for various publications about his comic strip research, and over the years he has seen both his knowledge and network grow considerably.

Rik has now turned his hand to working as an auctioneer at Catawiki. He can assess comics very quickly using his knowledge and experience. Is it a special edition, what exact year is it from and... what is it worth? He regularly consults his extensive collection of catalogues and files, with ads from the 30s up to the late 80s, to properly research the lots.
