Zé Povinho, by Cardoso Lopes, 1935

António Cardoso Lopes began working for ABC-Zinho at age fifteen. It is there where he shaped his style and career. He debuted with his most characteristic work, 'Zé Povinho', which was a simpler and more caricature-filled version of 'Zé Povinho' by Bordalo Pinheiro. Later on, he worked for Pim Pam Pum!, before he started his own magazine 'Tic-Tac', which ran from 1931 to 1937.

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.
