Antonio de Vita, who signed his work with Devi, was born in the 1920s. He started his career working for some Italian newspapers, but mainly for Alpe publishers in Milan. Later on, he became an artist for the French market, at Lug publishers. His two most notable series are 'Mirko, Le Petit Duc', published in the monthly Kiwi magazine and 'L'Aigle de Clermont', which appeared in Pipo. L'Aigle was about a 16th-century master swordsman, called Bussy d'Amboise, who fights to redress injustice. Throughout the years, this series has appeared under several names, such as 'Le Chevalier de la Vengeance', 'L'Aigle de Clairmont' and 'Le Cavalier Sans Nom' (this last one was used in Blek magazine).

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.
