Caperucita Encarnada, by Edgar

Antonio Edo Mosquera, better known as Edgar, was born in Valencia. Edgar did his first artistic work early in his life. During the Civil War, he drew several anti-fascist posters, along with his brother. He joined the publishing house Valenciana in the late 1940s, where his actual career began. Mosquera stayed at this important publisher of infantile productions until 1984, when Valenciana folded. He was active for Jaimito and Pumby magazines. For the latter, he created his most famous work, the Little Red Riding Hood parody 'Caperucita Encarnada'.

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.
