Fred, by Giorgio Carpinteri

Giorgio Carpinteri made his debut in Il Mago in 1978. Subsequently, he contributed to Pinguino and Nemo, and eventually to Frigidaire and Linus with a series of short stories collected in the book 'Flirt', published by Primo Carnera in 1984. During the following years, Carpinteri made comics and illustrations for many publications, manifests and advertising campaigns. He also cooperated with the RAI broadcasting company on various projects. Carpinteri was part of the so-called Valvoline group, a group of experimental comics artists, that followed in the footsteps of José Muñoz, Joost Swarte and Art Spiegelman. Other members of the group were Igort, Kramsky and Mattotti.

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.
