Asylum by Vicente Alcazar
The Knife of Jack the Ripper (Asylum #2)

Vicente Alcazar was born in Madrid and began a longtime collaboration with fellow artist Carlos Pino in the 1960s. Under the collective pseudonym CARVIC, they did mainly war stories for the magazine Chío (1967) and for the British market. They also cooperated on UK publications like TV Century 21 and War Picture Library. They entered the US market with the help of artist and editor Gray Morrow and they eventually moved to the USA in the mid-1970s. They worked on Marvel's 'Monsters Unleashed' in 1975, among others. Their careers eventually separated, when Alcázar kept working for the USA, while Pino focused on the British market. Alcazar cooperated on the movie magazine Basically Strange, Heavy Metal, Continuity's Megalith, DC's 'Jonah Hex' and on the horror titels by Warren Publications.

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.
