Mickey Mouse - The Terrible Tsunami (D 2000-113, 2002)

Joaquín Cañizares Sanchez learned the comics profession at José Casanovas's academy in Badalona. He began his career working as an inker for the publishing house Bruguera. He joined the Comicup studios in the early 1980s and shared a studio with Angel Segura Moreno and his childhood friend Miguel Fernandez Martinez between 1981 and 1984. He was the regular inker of Carlos Grangel on Disney comics like 'Winnie the Pooh' and 'The Wuzzles'. He became the penciller of these comics when Grangel left the studios.

In addition, he illustrated several 'Big Bad Wolf' and 'Little Hiawatha' stories for Anders And & Co. magazine. From 1991, now associated with Tello Art, he worked mainly on 'Mickey Mouse' stories for both the pockets and the magazines (Anders And, Onkel Joachim and Jumbobog). Since 2005 he is doing only magazine stories. In the 1990s he shared a studio with Miguel Fernandez again, as well as Juan Manuel Muñoz Chueca. It was during this period that the artists started working on the 'Mickey Mystery' sub-series.

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.
