Miguel Ambrosio Zaragoza worked as a civil cervant until the end of World War II. In 1946, he began creating comics under the pseudonym Ambros, starting with 'Dos Yankis en Africa' at Bergis Mundial. In the following year, he conceived 'El Caballero Fantasma' and 'En Jinete Fantasma' at Graphidea. He started working for the publishing house Bruguera in the early 1950s, creating comics like 'Chispita' and 'La Nave del Tiempo'.

El Capitan Trueno, by Ambros

In 1956, he teamed up with Victor Mora and created the series 'El Capitán Trueno', which appeared in its own title and later in the magazine Pulgarcito. The series was a big hit in Spain, and was drawn by a great many artists in the following decades, such as Martinez Osete, Comos, Nadal and Jésus Redondo. It knew a large merchandising line and was featured in several advertising campaigns. Also with Mora, Ambros produced 'El Corsario de Hierro' in 1977. In addition, Ambros has drawn 'Héroes del Deporte' at Editora Valenciana and several independent stories for Bruguera.

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.
