Mister X, by Paul Campani

Paul (Paolo) Campani was an Italian artist who started his career in the late 1940s. His early credits include drawing the 'Mister X' series and the erotic 'Gey Carioca' comic (created with Max Massimino Garnier). In 1948 he started working for the Argentinan market. There, he drew such titles as 'Tita Dinamita', which appeared in Cinemisterio. This comic was about a sexy girl, who sometimes was censored by other comic figures. With the legendary Argentine writer Oesterheld, he launched the 'Bull Rocket' series. Paul Campani has also illustrated some episodes of the 'Asso di Picche' series, created originally by Alberto Ongaro, Hugo Pratt and Mario Faustinelli.

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.
