Tani, by Vic Catan Jr.

Vicente Doria Catan Jr. worked for Filipino comic magazines like Superyor Komiks during the 1960s (a.o. 'Tani'). Like many Filipono artists, he went to work for US comic book companies through Tony De Zuniga's shop in the 1970s. Mostly using the pen name Vicatan, he worked for DC's horror and war titles during most of the 1970s and 1980s (The Unexpected, G.I. Combat, House of Mystery, etc.), and provided art for comic book adaptations of literary classics for Pendulum Press ('Billy Bud', 'Crime and Punishment', 'Othello', 'MacBeth', 'Julius Ceasar'). He was also present in the Warren magazine Eerie, in Archie's 'The Jaguar' (1983-84) and in Renegade's 'Revolver'. Vic Catan was also a novelist.

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.
