Chrispin, by Enrich

Enric de Manuel González, better known as Enrich, was born in France in 1930 but he carried out his professional career in Spain. It began in magazine Trampolín for which he created 'Ciriaco Majareto' at age twenty. He also did comics and gag panels for Alex, Nicolás and Jaimito until the mid-1950s. In 1957, he created 'El caco Bonifacio' and other characters for Tío Vivo, a magazine eventually acquired by publisher Bruguera. In the late 1950s he contributed to magazines La Olla and Pepe Cola. In 1961, Enrich ran an ephemeral magazine called Rififí.

Meanwhile, he became a regular at Bruguera and remained there until its final shutdown in the mid-1980s. There, he created such series as 'Tontolínez' (1966), 'Crispín' (1968) and '1 X 2 el Invasor' (1969) He stood out among the anonimous artists who took over 'El Reporter Tribulete' from Cifré. Enrich created characters for Bruguera's feminine magazines, in particular 'Montse, la Amiga de los Animales', which he created for Gina in 1978. The character outlived its publisher and could be seen in the Zipi Zape magazine of Ediciones B after the mid-1980s together with 'Humor sin Palabras', another section by Enrich.

Aside from Bruguera, Enrich contributed his work to Tele Radio, Gaceta Junior (where he created 'El Profesor Canuto y su Ayudante Bruto' in 1970) and Lecturas. He also drew many gag panels through agencies and worked on animated cartoons.

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.
