Marmittone, by Bruno Angoletta (1933)

Bruno Angoletta was an illustrator for various Italian magazines before he turned to comics in the late 1920s. He created three series for Corriere dei Piccoli: 'Marmittone' (1928), 'Calogero Sorbara' (1930) and 'Centerbe Ermete' (1934). In 1935 he was present in Il Ballila, where he created 'Romolino e Romoletta', a propaganda comic for the Italian army. In Il Guerino, he also created comics where he ridiculed the Anglo-Saxon culture and caricatured most famous American superheroes. In 1945 he left the comics field and returned to illustrating.

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.
