Hops und Stops, by Sandro Costa

The Italian artist Sandro Costa has drawn for Rolf Kauka's Fix und Foxi in Germany from 1978 to the 1990s. He worked at the same studio as Massimo Fecchi, and they often cooperated on stories. He was by far the most prolific Kauka artist in the early 1980s, and he was the main artist for 'Hops und Stops' from 1979 onwards. Since 2005, upon the relaunch of Fix und Foxi, he is back at drawing stories and illustrations with the two foxes.

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.
