Lindsor Covas, by Walter Ciocca

Argentine comics author Walter Ciocca started out in the architecture field, working on the renovation of Buenos Aires from 1932 to 1935. In 1948, he turned to creating realistic comics, drawing in a style that resembles woodcarving. His early works include 'Hilario Leiva' and 'Santos Vega'. In 1950, he launched his series 'Hormiga Negra' in La Razón magazine, followed by 'Fuerte Argentino' in Misterix. In 1954, he developed his most famous creation, the series 'Lindor Covas', again in La Razón. In 1962 a movie was made with the characters of Ciocca by director Carlos Cores.

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.
