Buenos Aires en Camiseta, by Calé

Alejandro Del Prado (Calé) was an Argentine humorist, born in Rosario. Shortly after World War II, he settled in Buenos Aires and began working in advertising. In 1947 he started a collaboration with the magazine Pobre Diablo, in which he created his series 'Buenos Aires Intimo'. This series was continued under the title 'Buenos Aires en Camiseta' in Rico Tipo from 1951. Although he was from the province of Santa Fé himself, Calé will be remembered for his clever observations of the Porteños, the inhabitants of Buenos Aires.

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.
