El Tio Carlitos, by Dante Faggioni

Dante Faggioni was born in Huancayo as the son of a huancayan father and a punan mother. A self-taught artist, he was author of the title comic of the comics supplement Tío Carlitos of the magazine Equis X in 1976. Tío Carlitos's appearance was actually inspired in taking another artist, Carlos Sánchez Luna Victoria, as real live model.

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.
