Manson, by Paolo Bisi

Born in Pacienza, Paolo Bisi won a comics contest in Prato, Italy, in 1981. However, it took several years before he actually entered the field of comics on a professional basis. After obtaining his degree at the Art Institute of Parma, Bisi worked as a freelance storyboard and layout artist for several ad agencies in Milan between 1987 and 1993.

He returned to comics in 1992, when Granata Press published the short story he created with Marcello Toninelli, 'La Casa dei Fantasmi', in their Dark Magazine. He then worked with Ade Capone on 'Requiem' (Intrepido and Liberty publishers, 1995) and two 'Lazarus Ledd' stories for Star Comics.

Bisi joined the art staff of Sergio Bonelli Editore and drew installments in the series 'Mister No' (1996-2005) and 'Zagor' (2005-2008). He subsequently made a series of three books about serial killer Charles Manson with Cédric Rassat for the French publisher Glénat between 2008 and 2010.

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.
