comic art by Piero Bernardini

Piero Bernardini studied to become a railroad technician, but eventually chose an artistic career. From 1908, he worked for Passerotto, the supplement of Il Giornalino della Domenica. During World War I, he worked for La Trincea. After the War, he intensified his collaborations, and became a versatile illustrator. He also drew for Il Corriere dei Piccoli, Il Giornale dei Balilla and Gazzetta del Popolo. In the 1920s, he created several comics for Il Corrierino, such as 'Don Chisciotte Coragiosi', 'Sussi e Biribissi', 'Cimabue' and 'Mago Melino'. He continued to draw after Word War II. In 1971, he wrote his autobiography.

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.
