Gaspar Bolaños began illustrating for Mundial magazine to earn some money for his familly after the death of his father. Fellow artist German Butze convinced him to make comics, which resulted in 'Rolando el Rabioso', a children's comics series well appreciated by several generations. The popularity of the series resulted in a Mexican petrol company using the character for one of their campains. Gaspar Bolaños drew the comic until his death in 1972.

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
