Aleksandar Denkov was born in Prague, Czechia. Although he only became 47 years old, his style was a big influence on Bulgarian comics. He began his career at the age of 17, publishing his work in the magazine Chuden Sviat.

Some of his comics were 'Hrabriat eskimos' (in Chuden Sviat), 'Zagovor v dvoreca' (script by Zmei Gorianin in Iliustrativno Chetivo) and 'Ban Ianuka'. Denkov studied painting, but eventually specialized in applied engraving. He is the creator of the first Bulgarian animated film, 'Little Thief', in 1945.

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.
