Alberto Calvo is the creator of such characters as 'Pepe Persona' and, most notably, 'Supermaño'. Supermaño is a grotesque sight of a typical inhabitant of Aragon's rural areas. Supermaño's early stories can be tracked down in such fanzines as Kaspa de rata since the mid-1980s. In 1988, the character got broader circullation in magazine El Víbora and then in Makoki (second run). Calvo has also contributed his comics to weekly El Jueves and daily Heraldo de Aragón. Supermaño's scattered funny stories were sometimes collected in book format.

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.
