Humanis Rex, by Gerry Alanguilan

Gerry Alanguilan is an architecture graduate from the University of Santo Tomas. Unsatisfied with the profession after working several years as a licensed architect, he became a comic book artist in 1992 after being inspired by Whilce Portacio, a fellow Filipino who was at the time drawing 'The X-men' for Marvel Comics. He left architecture completely to concentrate on his comics career, and after working in Philippine comics for several years, he was hired by Portacio when he formed a studio to produce work for American comic book companies.

On the side, he has worked on various independent American companies where he could do his own pencilling in addition to inking.

Alanguilan also tried to continue working on Philippine comics, where he could utilize his own writing and coloring on top of his illustrating. He has written and drawn 'Wasted' and 'Timawa' for Alamat Comics, 'Johnny Balbona' and 'Lastikman' for Mango Comics, short stories for 'Siglo: Freedom' and 'Siglo: Passion', and 'Humanis Rex!', appearing monthly in Fudge Magazine.

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.
