António Moreira Antunes, or simply António, is a talented Portuguese caricaturist and cartoonist whose career blossomed in the period after the Revolution of April 25, 1974. António started his career in March 1974 in the magazine República. In his comic 'Kafarnaum', which appeared in Expresso starting in 1975, he stigmatized the pros and cons of the PREC (period after the revolution). Later, he started working for other magazines, including Diário de Notícias, A Capital, A Vida Mundial and O Jornal. In 1983, his album 'Suspensórios' was published. That same year, António received a prize at the Salão International de Cartoon for his pastiche on the Israeli invasion of Lebanon.

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.
