comic art by Sebastiano Craveri

Sebastiano Craveri was active as a painter, illustrator and journalist, before he began a collaboration with the Catholic weekly Il Vittorioso in 1937. There, he created animal comics about the inhabitants of 'Zoolandia'. He had already drawn his first animal comics for Il Giornale dei Fanciulli in 1931. Craveri remained a regular contributor to Il Vittorioso until 1959, while also doing several advertising jobs. He also created 'Formachino' for Il Corriere dei Piccoli, a series with a strong resemblance to Disney's 'Bucky Bug'. Craveri drew for several magazines until the late 1960s, when illness forced him to quit his activities. Sebastiano Craveri was also an actor and inventor of prestige games.

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.
