Kaliman, by Crisvel

Cristóbal Velasco was one of the main illustrators for the Mexican superhero comic book 'Kaliman'. 'Kaliman' commenced as a radioplay scripted by Modesto Vazquez Rodriguez and Rafael Cutberto Navarro in 1963, but later became one of Mexico's leading comic books, mainly scripted by Jorge Dfaz de León, Mario de la Torre and Victor Fox. In succession of the original artist Zea Salas, Crisvel was one of the artists that handled the artwork in later years, together with Jesus Ramirez, Arturo Davila and Andres Cisneros.

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.
